10 x 20 inches
Thought I'd take a break from Udaipur now…:)
This is the Chatrapati Shivaji Terminus (formerly Victoria Terminus), one of the most important landmarks of Mumbai and the busiest railway station in India. Built by the British in honor of the Queen Victoria, it is one of the architectural marvels in the country! Sadly, this was also one of the targets of the terror attacks in 2008!
This subject has been painted by many artists, particularly the local ones. I too had a desire to paint this subject for some time, so when I made a trip to Mumbai last time, I shot some reference photos of the place and worked from them. I chose a wide format composition which I thought suited well for this kind of subject. I dared not paint the complex architecture and simplified it much!
Nice work Ramesh.ReplyDelete
Another bright happy painting. With just a hint of how busy it is.ReplyDelete
Thank you Mr.Richard! I'm glad you like the painting!Delete
It's just as I remember it, Ramesh, although I was more familiar with Dheli.ReplyDelete
It works really well, simplified architecture or not, I just love it!

Your watercolour skills never cease to amaze and delight. There is so much detail in this work and you make it look so simple! Thanks so much for visiting me, and yes, you will always be the best bicycle painter!ReplyDelete
Dear Liz, Thank you for such kind words! :)ReplyDelete
this is really beautiful - as you say the wide-frame format really works for this grand station. Lovely morning light and less people about - gives a feeling of a slightly older era :)ReplyDelete
Bellissimo acquarello, meravigliosa atmosfera e ovviamente bravissimo artista. Buon lavoro.ReplyDelete
