new life



the myriad of colours and reflection that throws up when paddy is transplanted is something to remember forever!  mostly in India this is done by women.. the water logged fields and the young green paddy saplings and lastly the unspoken race to the finish line..... 30 X 22 inch water colour on paper!

One of the most day to day life scenes in India. But a very powerful and beautiful scene.

Its a huge size work for a watercolor! The scene is as authentic as could be. The colors in the sarees and their reflection is amazing.

This is so evocative of the water, the climate - just beautiful. I can almost feel the ache in those women's backs!

To bring out life in paddy fields - very difficult but you have done it with ease. The posture of harvesting women is as it is difficult to bring out and naturally this is what I liked most. It is very difficult I know to get the correct posture.

Wonderful! The composition is great as is the brushwork. I love that you worked big.
