woods are lovely

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.

Wada @ Menvali

Had not done any structure for many days so tried this from photograph.
This is one famous wada at menavali which was residance of nana Fadnvis , diplomat from Peshwa days.
This painting was my attempt to paint some basic washes and going back to basic "KISS - keep it simple stupid" mantra. hope I have kept it simple :)
