Its very hot and humid and its better to do paintings in comfort of home this season :)
Full size painting done from Photo reference. When I say reference , it's not just copy of photo but try and get that painterely feel. Mnay a times its done from multiple photos . This one is from rerence photos of live root bridge near Cherapunji.Once basic drawing is done I hardly look at original photo and paint as if its done in plein air.
