This project lasted from January 2017 to August 2017. It was an exploration of my emotions on a particular day. It was a direct inner answer to the various surroundings, what caught my attention at the time, what was the greater context – all of this combined was transformed into these abstract watercolors. During the period, besides residing in Copenhagen, I was travelling in Nepal, Greece, Germany and Latvia – this has influenced the palette as well.
In a way it is a visual diary of the events that happened during that period and places I have visited. It has been an interesting journey to see how the brushstrokes would change, which brush I tended to use and what were the dominant colors in the palette. Looking at the each of the canvases I can easily tell the story of what was happening then, where was I, what was on my mind and how I felt. There were bad days, filled with anger, uncertainty, anxiety, sadness, etc. and there were good days, filled with inner peace, calmness, appreciation and joy.
