Light and Shade

Watercolor on Paper ( 15" x 20" inches)

I am working on a theme of 'Light and Shade' right now. This is one of them which I did a few days ago.


  1. Wonderful sunlit feel- softly stated.

  2. Good work Ramesh. But one thing is just troubling my 'logicl' mind. :). The light in the foreground seems to cut the grass track in the middle of the path into pieces. Whats your take on that??

  3. Oh my Ramesh, your colours are awesome. That purple tone in front just adds to the overall feeling of warmth and heat and that dappled light is so restful.

    By the way, I read somewhere (if I remember correctly), that en plein air refers to the capturing of light rather than just painting outside.

  4. Thank you very much Jill!
    Thanks Nithya!
    Thanks Prabal! Its the light coming through the dense foliage!
    Thank you very much Liz!

  5. Ramesh,it has really been so long that i didn`t done any painting.Thanks for your comment.Your turn back from portraits to landscapes is so beautiful.Ofcourse your new watercolors are vibrant .The perspective and play of light/shade is wonderful.Best of luck.

  6. Ramesh Bhaiya,
    I must say that your work is really amazing, much much more than i have heard of, though i remember the pencil sketch of HE-MAN, that you gave to me on my last visit to erode, which is still very very clear in my mind, it was amazing one.
    I liked each n every one of ur works very much, specially RAJASTHANI VILLAGER and THE SHEPHERD.
    Hope to see some more very soon
    Wish you a lots n lots of luck from all of us.
