Relaxing for some days in Goa. My travel painting kit goes along, of course. Do comment.
This is one of the most beautiful flowers I’ve seen. I shall upload the photo and invite fellow artists to paint this.

This is the view from the restaurant. Far away some fishermen with a net.

Teaching a small girl who coaxed her parents to go to the nearby town to buy some paints and paper. Really fun!
Cheers, Gita

Thanks Mary Lou, Nolan, Bill! It’s so mood lifting to teach children. Some more kids might join me today. The next time I might have to get some supplies like better paper and brushes.  :painting:
Cath, visiting my relatives and also catching up some sunlight. Berlin is rainy now in November and it can even last sometimes till March. It seldom snows and does not stay long.  :)
Bill, here is the photo. Looking forward to your rendition.

This is a perspective study of the view I am getting used to for a couple of days now.

Cheers, Gita

Thank you so much for your botanical expertise, Cath! I looked it up and so good to know more about this plant, the mountain ebony. It seems to have medicinal properties and also used in food.
Oh, you are at the beautiful Boden See in Germany! Love that place!

Thank you Jay!!

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Beautiful flower Gita.  It is so kind of you to encourage children to paint.  Bless you for that. Enjoy your time in the warmth.  We are freezing here in Canada at the moment as it is minus 16 degrees with a huge snow fall!!!!!

Patricia,
We also had a number of snow falls in the West in the last 4 weeks.  Actually, it started end Sep.  I managed to escape for 2 weeks but the drawback is very limited internet access.  Found a public coffee shop with internet and quickly I am catching up, but very limited time.  So off I go.  At least no snow to shovel here but lots of work on my plate. Patricia stay warm!
