Prazvi Pahwa
Prazvi has been painting with watercolors for over 5 years. She first discovered her love for the medium when she took a watercolor class in college and was enamored by the fluid, luminous nature of the paints. Though initially drawn to landscape painting, Prazvi now focuses primarily on still life and floral subjects which allow her to experiment with colorful compositions and unpredictable textures using wet-on-wet techniques.

When Prazvi hosts watercolor painting workshops and classes, her goal is to share her passion for the splendor and challenges of the medium while guiding colleagues to embrace their creativity. Her encouraging, insightful teaching style allows artists of all skill levels to build confidence while advancing their unique artistic voices.

Prazvi Pahwa is available for private bookings

Title or Location: The Needles, Isle of Wight
The Needles is a series of chalk stacks with a lighthouse on the western tip of the Isle of Wight. There are lighthouse keepers in our family history and so we are drawn to lighthouses wherever we go. This painting uses acrylic paint.

Title or Location: Deep Night
A few years ago I visited Derbyshire and was stunned by the dark skies. While we were there, we were treated to a night of shooting stars and I spent an hour, flat on my back, star spotting and loving it. The painting based on my memories is watercolour, gouache and Indian ink.

Title or Location: Portsmouth
This is an experiment in watercolour and Indian ink. I love the drama between the solid black and the soft background colours. The idea is drawn from a photograph in an online feature on silhouette photography by Karyn Teno. To get the net skirt shading I used a Cold Grey 1, Faber Castell Pitt Pen.

Title or Location:
This is a love scene that is inspired by a Chinese show I am currently watching: The forbidden flower. I took it as an opportunity to expand my knowledge and learn how to draw two whole bodies profiles and practice on how to draw a hand for the fist time! The most difficult part was to find the exact distance for her hand to fall into his. I hope it evokes love to all of you. Many friends have requested a follow up to this Confession saga, so I am currently working on The Answer to The Confessio

While visiting the local reclaimed wetlands at Mawson Lakes my son and I spotted and photographed a number of the birds and environment which I compiled into watercolour art. We have had a very dry summer and are awaiting much needed rain.

Title or Location: Relax and Feel the Calm
This is a water color painting based on a photo I took last year when visiting MT. Love the wide open spaces and the beautiful sky. This photo was taken while sitting and relaxing along a river in Bigfork. Love to enjoy the views and then incorporate into my paintings. Water colors are such a great choice for landscapes because of the way they flow and blend together just like nature.

Title or Location: Indian Trail, NC
At the age of 49, I decided to learn to paint. I have never even sketched or painted in my life. I love watercolor paintings so I started with that and I found that I love it. In February I committed to the 100 Day Project movement with D. Michelle Perry on her 100 Days of Wonder group. Each week she was giving us our Words of Wonder for each day. Day 35 was "Dew". I had already practiced water droplets for fun so I wanted to use them in a close up image of a leaf with dew on it. Th

Title or Location: Cheerful Cardinal Upon a Teacup
I painted this cardinal happily perched on a teacup as a reminder. Through all of the stress and busyness of life it is so easy to get caught up in overthinking and ignore the small beautiful moments all around us like savoring a warm cup of tea, or noticing a tiny vibrant bird outside our window. 9x12 Watercolor
