Marina Beach, Chennai

Watercolor on Bockingford paper
14 x 21 inches

My earlier painting of the same place was liked by many and so I decided to paint another beach scene. I used masking to preserve the whites for the waves. Also the original reference didn't have any figure in the foreground which looked kind of empty. So I chose this woman from another of my references, placed her where I wanted to, after some adjustments in the drawing stage. Hope you like it!
Have a wonderful weekend :)

  3. This is very nice. It shows a working beach which is in contrast to our beaches that are used primarily for leisure. The figure is a strong element and a good addition.
