This is a very famous institute in Pune.Many artists visit this for painting on weekends.The stone building with arches is a tough proposition,so i have taken a simpler frame and tried to show contrasting light plays on building.

It is always advisable to draw simple objects in initial stages of ones paintings lessons.We all tend to take bigger pictures like monuments ,streeet scapes etc.I am going back in my thought process and painting more of closeup objects now a days.My doors are also the fall out of this phase.this painting is also an attempt to simplify objects and scenes.This one is done very fast too.

It is always a big question to me of what to do with my ever growing paintings? Some are good overall,some turn out good in certain areas only.So I have found a way of reducing my paintings ,by cutting them( croping?) physically and paste them on my personal letterhead.I send all my informal notes on such letterheads! All my friends love a piece of fresh landscape stuck on the note!
I also crop them to make smaller frames for gifts.They workout economical and i can utilise my good part of the paintings.I am postong two such images,Approx. 4x 6 inches , but framed in glass,(you can see i couldnot avoid a flash reflection in photos!) which i have gifted to dear ones.

After monocromatic paintings ,i felt like posting this colourful painting of a hostel block at college of agriculture.Its buillt in british era and has a majestic touch .Arches and stone are nightmares to depict,...but i enjoyed doing them.

I did these paintings just yesterday! hence calling them fresh!
My pallett broke exactly in the middle,making two parts.The right parts hold all warm colours and left all cool and few warm.I decided to use only right side of pallette yesterday as had no time to buy new one.The result is some what monocromatic paintings.

i had posted a painting of steps few days ago,this one is from a different angle but same place.The waterboby is accessed by steps ,and used for various religious functions and celebrations all through the year.This temple complex is in revdanda,konkan.I personally like the graphic and abstract quality in this painting.

It rained yesterday in my city,though it is summer season.It cooled the hot air and felt fresh.i remembered a painting done long back ,after rains,so posting it.It becomes sunny immediately after rains,so the picture shows wet and clear areas.

This was a crumbling house,about to be brought down.Two windows and a morning light falling on it was a temptation i could not avoid.I had decided to take just onw window in picture, but when i started both looked good! So here it is .

most of the temple complexes have a waterbody, pond in the premises.The water is accesssed by steps all around.It is used for various rituals and festivals.I found these steps ideal to make a painting of abstract type, well almost abstract.

i was away to a place called revdanda a seaside village.The coastal village has typical houses,dut some wealthy people do have better and different looking houses.All houses have verandahs as the weather is sultry and humid.This is a door seen through verandah,which protects it from sun and rain.i have used orange on walls and door beacause it was painted with these shades only, and looking radiant in morning sun rays.i have done 15 paintings which you will see in coming weeks.size of painting is 11x 15 inches.approx.
