After a hiatus

"Munnar Landscape"
Watercolor on handmade paper
11 x 15 inches

I'm back after a 3 week hiatus...Call me lazy...!! Thats what I told my fellow blogger friend Prabal when he called me up today morning and asked why there wasn't any new post by me :)
Also 2 weeks ago, I had gone on a little family trip to Munnar, a small hill station in Kerala. Really liked the place and missed it after we got back. Though I couldn't paint there on location, I did take photographs and made this small painting a few days back from one such photo reference.
Another news I wanted to share with you all is that my painting titled 'Poster Wall' has won an award in the All India art contest 2012 held by Lokmanya Tilak Trust in Pune. This is my first award ever since I chose art as my profession and I'm very happy about it! :)

'Poster Wall'


  1. Muy buenas esos tonos de las montañas en la profundidad , enhorabuena.

  2. Congratulations on the award! And lovely Munnar landscape :)

  3. A big congratulations on the award. Well deserved. And this Munnar scene is really lovely.

  4. hi ramesh how r u
    nice work...........mast

  5. Congratulations on the award. "Poster Wall" is indeed a very attractive painting.
    I like your "Munnar Landscape" too but it does not have the same appeal to me as the Poster Wall, probably because there is no strong focal point.

  6. Keep going Ramesh. Your colors are lovely and improving every day.

  7. A very attractive landscape, congratulations for this award.

  8. Love the contrast of the blue background and the green forground. The emerald green top right ties it all together. Congratulations on the award! It is an amazing painting for sure.
    I have looked through all the great pieces I missed while away from the studio. I'm hoping to get back to it more steadily now...nothing wll get in the way!

    1. Thanks so much Catherine! It has been long since I heard from you! I like your latest painting!
