Had taken this photo in an adjoining village in my home town. When I took his photo, the old man exclaimed
"So, you are from the press eh ?. You are going to write an article about this village ?. these pipes have been lying around here and no one seems to care......"... I had to succumb to his authority and say "yes, I will talk about it"..
The best I could do here is to paint this old man and the un-used cement pipes that were supposed to improve the sanitation of this place.
But for the bright colours I have used, I felt OK with the result. But, I enjoyed painting it a lot.
Had taken this photo on Marina beach in Chennai on a cloudy morning.
While painting this, I had to remind myself not do overdo the washes. This paper (Montval) doesn't let you do it anyways..
used masking fluid to mask off the whites. Most was wet-on-wet except for the details in boat
..I am an out-of-touch hobby-painter, trying to re-discover the art in me..
my experiments and learnings with colours is what I share here..
