Happy to inform you all that I'm a part of an invitational watercolor group show at Art Perspective gallery, New Delhi. The show starts tomorrow (12th July) and will continue for a month featuring works of 19 watercolor artists. Some of them are top notch and I'm really honored to have my paintings exhibited alongside theirs. So do drop in if you are in Delhi! :)

Plein air painting

Yesterday I went to paint en plein air (painting outdoors on location) after a long time. The location which I had selected was some 12 kms from my home, on the outskirts. The place was very quiet and except for 2-3 people who were least interested in what I was doing, I hardly saw any one there!
When I had visited the place last time, there was this old dry tree which I had wanted to paint but when I reached the spot yesterday, I was surprised to find the tree all covered with fresh new leaves…LOL. Nevertheless, I decided to paint it.
Painted 2 scenes there. Here are the images. Hope you like them!

Have a wonderful Sunday :)

Had wanted to paint this for sometime now...Kerala is a wonderful place with its backwaters and lots of lush greenery, and more so during the monsoons. I had been there a couple of years back though it was a very short trip. Wish I could travel there now!
Have a great Sunday :)
