March 27th was a very memorable day for me. Not only because it was our Telugu New Year - Ugadi, but also because I spent most of the day at Lal Bagh - Bangalore, doing what I like most in my life- namely painting.
We, the members of 'Bangalore Art Forum' met at Lal Bagh on this day and completed our first activity namely 'plein air painting' successfully; as scheduled.
It was a very pleasant day, as only Bangalore is blessed with such a wonderful climate; as far as I know. Painting the nature under the shadow of the trees with a gentle breeze blowing against the face, and with six other artiists for company was an exhilerating experience. Artists who painted along with me are senior aritist Jagdish Kadur, Jyothirmoy (founder), Subodh, Sankar and Prabha.
'Plein Air' painting as it is popularly called in French; actually means 'painting nature on location'. It is the ultimate challenge for artiists of the realistic school of art to do this. I am looking forward to many more activities that is going to make our 'Bangalore Art Forum' a grand success.
