Worli Seaface

On 24th July Mumbai was on High alert. Met deparment had predicted higest ever tide (5.05 Meters) and heavy rains. This could have submerged few of the low lying areas of Mumbai. Fortunately it did not rain that heavily. Very next day I went to Worli seaface with family. Just wanted to drive across newly opened Worli sea Link. Sea was still rough and though with sealink as backdrop it would make good painting. As I started painting people crowded around and had to do only quick sketch. This is just 15 minutes effort but think I was able to capture the cloudy scene.

My blog URL is colors-etc , So far I have mostly posted color painting here is that etc-a small charcoal study. Charcoal as medium is wonderful and bit different from pencil. With different grades of pencil we can create light and shadow shading, still sketch remains line work of sort ,where as with charcoal volume can be created with ease.

Atharva Bungalow

Drawing this bungalow was difficult given fact that it has so many elevation lines to draw. I choose angle which made it rather simple. This is my in-law’s place at Vasai near Mumbai. It is surrounded by few more houses and tall coconut, banana trees. I have done many paintings seating in porch there.
