My early school years witnessed my innocent yet colourful flirtations with hand illustrations and the subjects always had an inclination towards fashion. That was an era when my ideas on real fashion illustration were still at their infancy and it was always my school note books, probably meant for maths lessons, which took the brunt of my creative assault… I am happy to be able to make a living out of it today!!

Here are some of my recent creations in water color…

THE TEMPEST

Yes, I know…this is a very common subject to paint. There are like millions of similar looking paintings everywhere. But somehow I have always liked to paint a ship struggling to sail ahead in a stormy sea. It represents optimism to move ahead in life despite all obstacles.

And also, yes, It does draw its inspiration from William Shakespere’s ‘The Tempest’ and thus shares the name as well.

I had painted it as  a school kid in water color and later as a miniature oil painting for practice and finally the present one, as a full scale painting.

THE DIVINE ELEPHANT

My first brush with the “BRUSH” after a long time. The challenge was elephantine in true sense when I decided to paint Ganesha, the harbinger of good luck and prosperity for the Hindus.
