Painting of Munnar

This is from a photo reference taken in Munnar around 3 years back. While going through all the photos I found it and thought of trying this. Munnar is a beautiful hill station in Kerala.

While doing this after the first wash I didn't like it at all. Didn't feel like completing it. Stopped painting and kept in my drawer. After two days I thought let me finish it instead of leaving it half done. So I added few layer of glazing and some final dry strokes for suggestions. And when I look into the painting after done, felt it was not that bad what I was feeling at the first stage. I felt good that I completed.

Materials Used:
Paper : Chitrapat rough texture handmade paper
Colors : Viridian green, sap green, gamboge yellow and ultramarine blue and brunt siena.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Painting !

Paintings inspiratations from Shivanasamudra trip

Waiting for customers for coracle ride

An old bridge 

I visited to Shivanasamudra and Talakadu two weeks back. Though there was not much water in Shivanasamudra waterfalls but I still like the scenes around it. We came little down from that place and went for coracle ride. It was really nice. 

Whenever I visit any new place I get so much inspirations to paint :) I always carry my sketching kit with me, but somehow I missed to sketch or paint. I think I have to improve on that.  But I make sure to click lot of pictures for my painting reference. 

I know there is a lot of difference in painting on location and painting from a photo, but when I paint from photo of a place I visited I feel I am sitting in that place and I try to capture the mood what I experienced. I really enjoyed doing these paintings.

Hope you like them.
Happy paintings !!!
