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

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.

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.

Hi, I?m Tracy, I?ve recently started painting with watercolour, this painting was inspired by the loss of my dog Indie, I call this painting ?my minds eye ? as it depicts what I see when I go to sleep, just me and my dog taking a walk.As a beginner in watercolour this was a pretty challenging painting and nowhere near perfect but I love it anyway and appreciate all the great feedback I?ve had .

Just a watercolour on a picture downloaded online. I added a star fish to make the painting more interesting. I had posted this painting in my personal Facebook.

This wasn't a painting from a photo, it was painted from memory, a Robin in my garden at Christmas, dropping by when I was thinking of my brother who sadly passed away last year at the same time. I just though it was poingnant, hence the name - a Robin to remember.

Title or Location: Cattle auction
This watercolour was painted about 16 years ago.I was looking for some images of people as a drawing/painting exercise, and happened to come across this photo in a book. My immediate thought was this would make a very interesting picture.The scene is a cattle auction somewhere in North Yorkshire.

Title or Location: Peek-a-Boo
Spring is in the air. I have recently been doing some daffodil paintings. For this painting I did a wash and instantly saw the potential for more daffodils and space for the lamb peeking through them. One of my former instructors always said, ?Listen to your painting.? This is exactly what I did here. Possibly, the idea of a lamb was inspired by the season of Easter as well.

Ailsa Craig is an island in the Irish Sea off the Scottish coast. Its a magical place and the colours of the sea and sky can be exquisitely beautiful. One of my favourite places to paint. This is one of a series of paintings I have done of the island.
