Timeless beauty! (water color)

Old temples by riverside in Black and White have a timeless feel about them. So here is a painting I did in Paynes Grey to achieve a similar feel. Hope you like it. Composition theories prescribe avoiding too much action in the corner of paintings - however the goats here were too inviting! They also do not cause lot of disturbance.

Lavasa 2

Temghar Dam backwaters on a cold and grey evening. There was no need to look for colors other than Paynes Grey. I personally love these B&W paintings. They look even better after framing.

Lavasa 1

Yesterday I went for a drive with a friend and took some photographs on the way. Here is a painting based on one of them. I hope you will like it.

Evening at Harne village!

This one took a day! Normally I paint the light and mid tones first and then darks in the end. However this one has so many details that there was a great risk of losing the tonal balance. So I filled all blocks in mid- tones first and then glazed a wash of dark grey to achieve the light effect. Hope you will like it!
