@ NGMA Bangalore

It's been a long time since I visited any art gallery, and the chance to do plein air at National Gallery of Modern Art at Bangalore was a great opportunity. The fountain area with the main building to the right was a perfect scene...tried out all the techniques in watercolours!  the art gallery was also fun with most of the Indian masters on display! watercolours on 16" x 12",  300gsm paper.

this lush green park in the midst of urban Bangalore looks like a deciduous forest!  its a treat to paint there.
water colours to me is 'controlled aggression', but here it is more of aggression and less of control!  had to redo and overlay and blotch up a few areas....but as always it was fun! water colour on 300gsm A3 size
