bhutan visit





The monasteries in bhutan are mostly white washed structures with an red band running horizontaly,which is a lucky charm band as they call it.it was in a way easy to leave paperwhite as walls ,but showing tonal values in white was a challenge.The background also becomes equally important in white structures.I am posting some here.

Oh my Sanjeev, what a pleasure going through your paintings and pics of Bhutan. It looks totally amazing and you certainly caught the essence of this Kingdom in the mountains.

How intimidating a subject to even attempt--and then to do it so well! Thanks for sharing your trip.

I never tire of looking at your work. The paintings are so refreshing and inviting, executed with obvious love.

I continue to be envious of your loose approach.
