WALK ON THE HIGHWAY
Painting tiny people walking away into a distance was a challenge. I had to create an illusion of saree clad women and panche clad man and a boy, all of them in motion, and also giving the impression of them guiding a herd of donkeys, which is not even visible in the painting. Probably the lone donkey on the left gives a boost to the imagination. Apart from this, creating the illusion of harsh sunlight hitting the backs causing dark shadows to fall on the earth was also a pleasure to paint.
The Herd 2 is an acrylic painting on canvas of size 12'x16".
