Charcoal & White Chalk on paper, 11 x 15 in.

I was so much fascinated by this image that I painted 2 different versions of it. The original reference was in B & W. Who knows, I may paint yet another version :)

I was commissioned to paint my older painting "The Blue Bicycle" on a 5 feet canvas for a client in Mumbai! The original version is already sold. This one is done in acrylic.

Kolkata Street

Watercolor, 15 x 20 in.

Hi all! Had been to kerala last week. And what a proper time it was to visit such an exotic place...i.e., during the monsoon! Its truly God's own country! I've captured many pics of rain drenched streets and the backwaters and the beach. Enough to keep me busy for now! Will post them here as soon as I paint. Have shared some of those pics on my Facebook page which could be viewed by FB users here.
For now I'm posting one of my personal favorite watercolor paintings. This is a street scene from Kolkata, capital city of the state of West Bengal and one of the metropolitan cities of India. The reference photograph for this was provided by Shubhangi Athalye. Thanks so much Shubhangi!
