Hi Ajay
Lovely work! The feel of the wada is captured beautifully!

Prabal- isn't that blue very common on walls here :), used cerulean blue , was not very sure of result as this color tends to get opeque if applied thick.
Bike was added to give old character to wada.
Rupesh,Sandeep-Thanks

What a beautiful old building and you've done a marvellous painting to remember it by. So sad that these lovely old buildings have to make way for 'progress'.

Ajay, Rightly said. Blue is very common, but very difficult to paint. I had tried a blue house and failed miserably. :(
Hence I really appreciate the way you have pulled it off.

I got hooked to ur paintings... I liked all of them but the painting at the top remains my favourite...there is a strange melancholic feeling in this painting which will stay with me... keep walking!!!
