Comfort Squat - digital painting

Comfort Squat
figurative painting
medium - digital
size 13x16

I have noticed this common squat posture among village people and found that they can sit like this for hours because they find it very comfortable.  Probably it is a healthy posture too. How long can you sit like this.

The Taj Mahal

It has been some time since I posted on my blog. One reason being that I did not have an internet connection for a long time.  I hope to start posting regularly now, and paint a lot too.

The Taj Mahal may be the most photographed architectural wonder of India.  Unfortunately I still have not had the opportunity to visit Agra and see this absolutely wonderful marble construction in true life.  I have seen many wonderful photographs of the 'Taj Mahal' and wondered how it would look in real life.   Even more beautiful I am sure.

Nevertheless, it did not stop me from painting this wonder of the world, using photographic reference clicked by my daughter for me to paint.
