Painting of Thirst-Quenched cool sip

'Quenched' is a painting done in acrylics on canvas of size 16"x12".

This painting is part of a series I am painting, called 'Body Language of India'. In this series, I hope to capture the day to day beautiful scenes and the body language of the 'Indian people' we see around us, but do not have the time to appreciate.

In this painting note the body language of this young teenage girl, having a 'thanda thanda cool cool sip' of fresh tender-coconut water to quench her thirst in the 'hot hot' sun. I have done this painting in an 'abstracted realism' syle. The hot sun is represented by bright orange colors, and the coolness of tender coconuts by the greens.
