End of the day, Varanasi

Watercolor on Saunders paper 300 gsm
14 x 21 inches
Hi all…it’s been long…I recently got myself a new keyboard (synthesizer) and am now busy creating karaoke tracks on it (yes, I do it professionally... :) got a list of tracks to be made for a singer friend) that I couldn't get to paint all these days! Hope to complete the order in the next 2 weeks and get back to painting. Not being able to paint is really frustrating!

Posting a painting today which I did a while ago...a scene from Varanasi, one of the oldest cities on earth and an important pilgrimage for us Indians! The reference photo was provided by Laurent Goldstein who is a wonderful photographer and my online friend. Laurent is from Paris but he mostly stays in Varanasi now and considers it his second home. I intend to meet him personally the next time I visit the city!

  3. I like the composition, with most of the objects clustered in one side. And of course, its brilliantly done.
