'Namma Bengaluru Habba' Festival at Sankey Tank Bengaluru

So happy to be a part of the upcoming 'Namma Bengaluru Habba' Festival to be held on Sunday 20th August 2017 at the famed Sankey Tank of Bengaluru. Organized by the tourism department, it is a green initiative that will be creating awareness about environment preservation.

If you happen to be around don't miss this festival and do visit my stall in which I will be displaying my 'Landscape Paintings' which are mostly inspired by our 'Lal Bagh' Park. Some are framed paintings and some are not yet framed as they are newly created paintings, and I have not had the time to even mount them at the least. As a result, all these paintings will be available at very reasonable prices for the benefit of the Collectors.

Here is a sneak peek into some of my paintings that will be displayed at the Namma Bengaluru Habba.

Black and White paintings - Impasto - Lal Bagh series

Here are a few more of the series ' Lal Bagh Lake Reflections'. Did these paintings using only black and white artist acrylic paints, applied with a palette knife. The technique is called 'impasto'. Thick paint is lifted using a palette knife and applied on the canvas just like applying butter on bread. Love this technique. Note the beautiful shadows formed when clicked with a camera.

Study of landscape painting in various styles has always been my love. Nature is so wonderful and full of bounty and gives me a free hand in trying her out, and helps me to keep discovering her again and again in various forms to my hearts content. 

Recently I did a study of some landscapes in an abstract point of view, trying to discover the hidden colors and natural designs in them.
