Evening light

This weekend was one of those rare weekends when I had to drop by office for an unanticipated work..I had decided to paint something, but had to call it off.. And while I was driving to office, with the setting sun ahead of me, I saw many interesting frames pass-by...this is one of 'em (which I painted after getting back home)

fruity start

Returning to paint and brush after a long long time.. feels rusty..

Wanted to paint a live subject and had not enough time for en-plein-air...
and was delighted when my 1.5 yr old daughter identified all the 3 fruits !
was like a good 'pat-on-my-back' :)

morning walk

Here are 2 quick sketches. I wanted to paint the trees that I see from my balcony. I had rushed though them without enjoying in the last painting..So here's the dessert !

Fabriano 300gsm. 6" x 8"

Having painted this, I did not really like the composition. In fact, I never tried to compose it..So thought removing some trees and adding some interest.. here's the morning walk..

Canson Montval. 8" x 11"

Had been a while that I had tried painting without a pencil sketch..hope you enjoyed these...

rain coming down

The retreating monsoon has been very active this year in Bangalore and it's still raining here..
Sitting in my balcony I was watching these nimbus clouds descend and precipitate...
With my little daughter sleeping warm, I took a break from baby seating and grabbed the colours..
Had to be quick to finish before the little one woke up and cried :)

towards the end, it started pouring and I had to rush through the foreground foliage..
I hope I have captured the moment..

menavali ghat

Happy Diwali everyone !

Wanted to try this new handmade paper I had bought last week.
as usual it turned out to be a blotting paper that renders the brush dry after a stroke..and then dulls the colour at the end :(
But I had a good time painting this one after a long break..and it's a temple-reflection again :)

size : 11" x 14"
This temple is in Menavali in Wai, Maharasthra, on the banks of river Krishna..
hope you like it.

Here's the smaller sketch on a cartridge paper
