Bathing Ghat 2



Bathing ghat - Oil Painting on Canvas

This picture was another admirable one from the Edwin Lord Weeks' collections. Yet another chance to paint water! Painting water is a great relaxation. It takes me to the elements of real water. 


Painting reflections - one of my favourite subjects! There is no definitive outline that a reflection needs to carry and the waviness and transparency that a reflection portrays makes it unique from all other subjects.

The pot! I liked it better than the ladies :) Its copper colour, the sunlight glare and the shadow were new and interesting to me.

The old wall in the background - though it's just a plain surface without depth, it has an artistic design  created by the marks left by the rain water leaks and the faded wall paint here and there.
