Ameya, Oil on Paper, 15" X 11"
This is my first serious sketch of my son, Ameya. I have done a few in pencil before but I think here I have captured the likeness almost perfectly. I now feel I should have softened the line of the hair on his right temple.
All comments and critiques are most welcome.

Hislop College Grounds

Hislop College Grounds, Watercolour on Paper, 11" X 15"
Picked up my watercolour brushes after a while now. Did this from a photo I took in my hometown Nagpur. Hislop College is one of the oldest in the city and has extensive grounds. A great place to go plein air painting if you have a group! :)

All comments and critiques are most welcome!

A Still Life and Some Good News

Indian Bells and Japanese Fan, Oil on Canvas, (18" X 14") 
 Although my wife had bought these lovely bells with the embossing of Lord Ganesh about a couple of years ago,  I finally gathered enough courage to paint something so complicated only last week. It took me about 12 hrs to complete this. All comments and critiques are most welcome. :)

Something else I wanted to share with you all is that y drawing "Worker Woman" won the "M/s. Hindustan Pencils Ltd. Award for Charcoal on Paper" at the recently concluded 122nd Annual All India Art Exhibition of the Bombay Art Society. 

Thank you so much all my dear friends for your support and encouragement! :)
