Low Tide, Gorai Creek

Watercolor on paper
14 x 21 inches

Done from one of my reference pics of Mumbai city. This is a scene of Gorai creek in suburban Mumbai. One has to cross this creek in order to reach the Gorai beach. While walking towards the ferry, I noticed this wonderful scene of light shining on the sand and immediately captured it on my camera. The famous global vipassana pagoda is also seen in the distance. I have used masking fluid to save the whites just like my last painting of Gorai beach. The figures were added from imagination.


  1. Wow man! This is way beyond anything I have seen lately. Very well done really. Is there also a little bit of gouache in this?

  2. WOW, Ramesh, you really captured your "wonderful scene" beautifully.

  3. It's really a master piece..Excellent.

  4. Stunning painting. Very subtle colors and scene, but so much drama.

  5. Dear Ramesh,
    I love this work!
    Cheers, Sadami
