March Art Demo​​nstration

The FAA welcomes Meghana Mitragotri as our Guest Artist at our March 3rd General Meeting. 


Meghana is a floral and landscape watercolor artist in Pleasanton, CA.  She was born in Kalpakkam, India, to a family of scientists.  Being exposed from a young age to a diverse cultural community, she developed and interest in art, languages, classical music and dance, but eventually finding a love for painting.  


Watercolor became her medium of choice for the sheer versatility of water, resulting in an array of shades, movement, textures and hues.  Her vibrant, signature style is often realistic, sometimes impressionistic.  She draws her inspiration from landscapes, flowers, and birds.  Lighthouses and windmills are among some of her favorite subjects. 

Meghana began to develop her own techniques over time, focusing on wet-into-wet, negative painting, lights and shadows, and color theory.  She loves to use a variety of bold and subtle colors, and admits she must always have a shade of green in all of her paintings! 

Meghana also teaches watercolor lessons online.


More details can be found at her website,


Please join us for her demonstration where she will demonstrate her techniques and how she takes inspiration and brings it to life in her paintings.  

More of her work can also be found HERE
