Painting of Ranganthittu Bird Sanctuary - contemporary impressionism - usha shanthraram



'Siesta' - a view of  Ranganthittu Bird Sanctuary. 
acrylic painting on canvas -
size 32x24 inch
white frame

I had a clear idea of what colors to use, what format to adopt, and how to create the illusion of moving waters - much before I started on this painting. But, it was the serene atmosphere, tranquility and a sense of peace that I wanted to project - because that is what I felt that afternoon, when I was really there - at the Ranganthittu Bird Sancturay.  

It took me just 2 days to finish this painting, and I never felt the need to retouch it even for minor changes - after that.
