Scintillating Sails

It's been a long time since i painted a sea scape, and i thought that the scintillating reflection would be a good challenge in watercolours. With just 3 colours and a dash of the 4th colour, i was able to paint this. I was still nervous with the washes which is why i chose the smaller size! :-) water colour on 300 gsm CP paper 10 x 7.5 inch #watercolour #watercolor #aquarelle #seascape #artbymra

Cool Shade

I love village scenes, and I painted this because i wanted to feel the coolness of the shade under the trees. Hope i have succeeded :-) It is these simple pleasures you miss when you are living in cities!

Winter to Summer (Leh)



There is something in the air of Leh that evokes strong desires to capture and encapsulate the scenes there, be it winter or summer! This is a scene i captured on my camera during the unsuccessful trip to Pangong lake, so decided to drive up to Hemis Monastery. I have added water to the dry stream to make the winter look like summer! #artbymra #watercolour #watercolor #leh #aquarelle #landscape

Mirage

This is a concept-painting made on request by a young mirage 2000 fighter pilot, who had seen my helicopter painting in Dec 2016. I added the pilot and the wet tarmac to make it more lively. Safe flying and happy landings to all aviators! water colors on 300gsm cold pressed paper 10 x 7.5 inch

On controls!

For me close formation is the most thrilling and challenging flights. It needs skill and most importantly utmost faith, confidence and trust on your leader/wingman. This is a formation flight during the inauguration of Aeroindia 2017 on 14 Feb, in which i was on controls as No.2 in the LCH formation, part of a 13 helicopter HAL helicopter formation.
