Wild River

I painted this from a reference video grab from a movie on TV.  i liked the scene because of the sparkling water and the myriad of colours that filter through the trees.  Made some changes to the background and brought in the sky which was non-existent in the video grab.  Water colour on 400gsm hand made paper 22 x 14 inch. Before painting this i made a smaller version of size 8x6 inch study, which looked more spontaneous and more transparent.

Rain Drive!

 A drive during rain with all the reflections on the road and the water dripping down the windscreen to form beautiful rivulets is an amazing experience!  Bangalore road during this monsoon.  Water colour on Fabriano 300gsm cold pressed paper 16 x 12"

Hogenakkal falls

The mystic nature of waterfalls presents an excellent topic for painting.  Here i have tried to capture Hogenakkal falls in Dharmapuri, Tamilnadu.  I drew the inspiration to attempt this after seeing a demo of a Dhuadhar falls painted by Bijay Biswaal at Chitrakala Parishath (Bangalore) sometime back.   Water colour on 270gsm hand made paper 22 x15 ".   painted from a reference photograph from internet.

Banana flower

The exotic banana flower is used extensively in South Indian and South east Asian cuisine.  It evokes memories from my childhood when we used to peel the flower and separate the edible portion of the flowerets.  It is full of nutrients.  Banana plant is one in which all the parts, the fruits, stem, flower and the leaves are useful.  I painted it more for its vibrant colours!  watercolour on hand made paper 10 x 14 ".

May Flowers (Gulmohar)
