Flora Fountain


I think painting heritage structure is difficult as you can’t take much liberty in composition. These are well known structures and hence attempt should be there to paint what you can see. This is flora fountain (now area is known as Hutatma chowk -named after SamYukt Maharashtra movement martyrs).
The fort area in Mumbai where this fountain is situated is known for many such heritage structures and mainly for gothic style buildings

Hello Ajay, finally picked up on your blog via Sanjeev. The full effect of your work can be seen when enlarged. It is superb, especially as you said, you can't fudge the detail on something as well knows as this monument. Great work.

Yes, painting historical landmarks is a challenge, but this is wonderful. Just enough detail to be believable, but fresh and loose. Very nice!
