Low Tide in Staithes, 24" X 20". Oil on Canvas, 
I have been a huge fan of the artwork of the british master painter David Curtis, ROI RSMA, both his watercolours and oils. Staithes is a recurrent place in most of his plein air work. He has painted it several times in all seasons and light conditions. One ought to see his work to appreciate the true beauty of this place.
I did this from a reference photo I found on the internet. Please do feel free to comment and critique :)

Seascape and Watercolour Sketches

Ratnagiri Beach, Oil on Canvas, 18" X 24" 
Did this one from a photograph I took at Ratnagiri on the Pule Beach. Awesome place to visit. The sea is always so amazing to look at and paint :) The photo of the painting though is not so good, with too much glare especially on the top left corner.

I also did a couple of watercolour studies recently. Doing watercolours after a gap of a few months, it felt like beginning from scratch :)

All critiques and comments are most welcome.

Andaman Afternoon,
Watercolour on Paper, 16" X 12"

Beach at Ganpati Pule, Oil on Canvas, 14" X 18"
Best wishes for Christmas and New Year to all my dear friends :)

A small sketch of the lovely beach adjacent to the Ganapati Temple in the village of Pule in Konkan. It is generally a very crowded place and /I was lucky to find this secluded spot with only these birds for company.
All comments and critiques are most welcome.

Seascape I, Oil on Canvas, 24" X 36" 
Its been a long time since I have posted anything on this blog. I have promised to myself I shall be more regular now :)

I did this seascape after combining several references, some my own, others from the internet. I am not used to painting canvases this size and it took me about a week to finally get it completed. I like to paint wet-in-wet and with a canvas this large it becomes quite difficult. 

Please do let me know what you think of this effort. 
Thank you so much for visiting. :)
