Konkan House 2

Konkan House 2, Watercolour on Paper, (11" x 14")

This is another painting based on a referece photograph taken in Konkan. I wanted to capture the feel of a warm sunny day, but I guess the excessive use of blue goes counter to that intention.
Anyways, we live (read paint) and learn :)
Thank you all for stopping by. All comments and critiques are most welcome.

Lady with a Lamp

Lady with a Lamp, Oil on Canvas Panel, (12" x 10")

Please don't charge me with plagiarism, I have only copied the title! I hope I may be pardoned for doing that because the painting is no way close in subject matter or QUALITY to the great S.L. Haldankar's masterpiece.:)

This stylised bust of a tribal indian woman was a gift from a very accomplished artist whom I greatly respect and admire. I have wanted to paint this brass lamp for a long time too. This one took me about 12 hours to complete.

I hope you guys enjoy looking at it as much as I enjoyed painting it. Comments and critiques please ......

Evening in Adasa

Feeding the Bullock, Watercolour on Paper, (10.5" x 14)

I am back after another unforced break. Took me three attempts before I could get this painting this far. I did this from a photograph of the beautiful village of Adasa (about 50 km from my hometown Nagpur). This place is famous for the ancient Ganesh temple.I took loads of photos here and hope to convert atlest a few of them. 
Thank you so much for stopping by. All critiwues and comments are most welcome.
