Fisherman's boat -Oil on canvas..20 cm x 25 cm


This is a painting of a fisherman's boat, in a stage of dismantle near Madh Island beach. It seemed this boat was getting constructed for fishing and was tied to shape with various ropes . I am not sure if I am done with this painting. Will wait for a few days and see if I need to make some more touches to enhance the effect.

Sai Baba

This is an acryllic on Oil Paper that I made for my Mom, who is his devotee.I am not familiar with acryllic paints. However, I am fast realising that it is good for quick paintings, though nothing can beat the authenticity of oils.

Banyan Tree in building-Acrylic on paper


This Banyan tree stands right in the middle of the front portion of our building. I love its refreshing greens. Creepers fall out like fronds of hair , as if trying to rush out of place, just in time to be held back by the big tree itself!This is a free hand brush sketch with acrylic on paper.

Ferry on the beach -18''x20'' -Oil on Stretched Canvas


This is a small ferry which was parked on the Ferry ghat of one of the beaches in Mumbai. It was freshly painted, left out in the sun to dry. The small garland of Marigolds hung from one corner, signifying that the auspicious Puja was over, and the boat was ready for sailing!This painting was one of my toughest works till now.I had painted this from a snap that I had clicked and wasn't sure what to phase out and what to keep in the painting.Ultimately this is what I have.

Some daily free hand brush sketches



The first one is done with acrylic paints, the second with brush using acrylic paints and the third is a crayon sketch.

Daily Free hand paintings



Over the months I have fallen into the routine of doing some kind of art everyday.I mean I may be doing something a little involving with oil, but on the side, I have started doing a sketch everyday with some other medium. Currently, am working on an oil of a boat parked on a beach and its been pretty tedious. I did these two free hand paintings with acrylic & ceramic paints.The first one is a bench outside my building where the ladies mostly sit and gossip.I love sitting there but mostly miss out on it due to my work timings.however, I do retreat sometimes late evening when i wanna switch off from the world.I just love the benches with the creepers on the walls behind.The second is a view from my balcony of a car parked under a huge tree.
