Sunday noon

In her hand is morning paper..Sunday man..it is not everyday.
Once more i am happy with a kind of Blurr impressionist look which I could retain.Yes..I want to paint like Benard Dunsten.The small painting you see on top corner is "Red Zinger" by Jason waskey.If you have a good eyesite you might even notice all his brushstrokes on the spoon.

Rustic Beauty


Rather a quick attempt, not the best face I have painted but i was quiet happy because i managed to leave some under painted green in the face and hopefully have caught the rustic look intended. During the exhibition we put red dot on a painting sold. A friend of mine asked weather the custom came from the same Indian red "bindi" tradition denoting the unavailability.

Kitchen



It took me about two months to finish this..dont believe? Very ambitiously I started this interior setting up my easel on Sunday morning. The light would change but I had taken a digital picture as well blocked in the masses within 15 minutes. Soon after a heavy lunch I found myself dozing till the end of daylight. The next few days I started working further on this one and would keep it away in less than 5 minuets. Finally yesterday I put a final word and fished it since I have to put up in my solo exhibition called “At Home” starting day after tomorrow

Puddle mirror

I loved those puddles and reflection. On our roads you get lots of such wonderful reflection puddles in a single shower .This is why I am happy with our town road building authorities while most people are cursing them. this is acrylic on some kind of oil paper, though a bit illustrative I was happy doing more detailed work than usual.

Bicycle on orange wall

I dont know why but somehow I was thinking of Andrew Wyeth while painting this one.

Old man

I guess he was a very honest looking old man. Some of my friends when I show them this portrait say he looks a bit like Osama while the other say he looks like Osho.Some just say I have painted the beard very good.

Blue Wall

How is this one? Blue wall with a pinch of salt. For a long time I wondered how some of these guys in typically low income housing areas of India paint their walls all blue, I mean such a strikingly bright cerulean cobaltish blue even a "colorist" architect/designer would not dare to use in such quantity Later I realized the color actually comes in powder form for a very cheap price, mixed with water and serves the purpose of paint and plaster together.
