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.
