'Lalit'.. Acrylic on Canvas Sheet A4

.
A quick painting I made to gift to a young friend who is still a student, an IIM graduate. She is leaving the city tomorrow and I made this as a gift for her.

Due to shortage of time I used acrylic paints, so that it dries fast.

Hope she likes it.

I was humming raag Lalit when i was painting this and I associate this evening (though its an early morning raaga) and this painting with Lalit raaga.

For those who are interested :

Lalit is a raga in Hindustani classical music. It is commonly described as serene and devotional and is performed at dawn.

The swara (notes of the Indian musical scale) of Lalit put emphasis on the minor second (Re) and minor sixth (Dha), and include natural and sharp fourth (Ma), but omit the commonly used perfect fifth (Pa).(Wikipedia).
Link for song Badi dheere Jali from Hindi movie " ishquiya" in lalit..Enjoy!

I know this is my worst ever photo till date, that too after a trial of almost half an hour, which is half the time I took to paint this!

Flowers are your forte...and my weakness. Also maybe i like a fully loaded picture like this. How do you choose where your signature appears?
