Colours of Buffalo


The ubiquitous water buffalo is quite common in Tamilnadu and roams freely even if they are domestic. I have heard people calling lethargic individuals as Erum(ai) Made (Buffalo in tamil).  When i was a child i remember going to the  street corner in the mornings and waiting till the milkman used to milk a she-buffalo and retun home with some fresh milk.  The buffaloes used to scratch themselves on the restraining wire of lamp post to which they were tied and there always used to be a stuffed calf to fool the milch buffalo.  Not to forget the innumerable times that i crossed their path, always scared to see their gory horns and threatening glares while avoiding them, hoping that they would not turn and head toward me. So many sights came flooding to my memory when i saw this buffalo and was happy to see that i could paint it with so many colours!

Vibrant Day


 While scanning for subjects of aerial shots of mountains and lakes, i came across this beautiful vibrant scene on the web.  Just picked up my brushes and viola, it got created! Always a fan of minimal palette, especially with greens and greys!  watercolor on handmade paper 300gsm 10 x 7 inch #artistoninsta #watercolorartist #watercolous #watercolors #aquarela #aqurelle #artbymranand #artbymra #landscapepainting #landscapeartist #clouds #meadows #countryside

River Rapids

I love those hills and the meandering rapids with splashing foam. Reminds me of my river rafting in 2004 experience with family on the Teesta river bordering Sikkim and West Bengal. It was a memorable splash! watercolours on handmade paper 280gsm 22 x 15 inch #watercolours #watercolors #aquarelle #aquarela #watercolorartist #artistsoninstagram #artbymranand #artbymra #landscape #rapids

Elks in Velvet

When i saw a photograph captured by Somesh Nagthan of the Elks at Yellowstone, i knew i would paint it some day. Yesterday after half an hour of sifting through my computer i found it. What a breathtaking scene, the elks are cautious and alert, their look tells it all.  During spring the new antlers that are growing on the elks are covered 'in velvet'.
