You have managed to capture the morning light beautifully.

Very nice! Our main concern is selecting the number of paintings and framing!

Crystal Cook said...

It's so beautiful Prabal. I think this is one of my favorites of yours. The thing I like the most about your work is that you make each painting look effortless, your washes are clean and glowing, and your composition is always engaging. Very nice work. Good luck getting ready for all your exhibits! You must post pictures of that okay? :)

Prabal said...

AK sir,
Thanks a lot. I always try to capture light in my paintings in some way.

Ramesh,
You are correct.. Now I am really confused about which paintings should I be taking for the exhibition. :)

Prabal said...

Crystal,
Thank you, thank you, thank you.. I am just learning to paint everyday.. And when I get such wonderful comments from friends like you, its like a confirmation that I am learning.. Exhibition is from 30th June to 4th July.. I'll keep updating about it here and I'll surely post the pictures.. :)

This is wonderful. Done with such skill. I especially like the distant roofs, actually parallelograms! Isnt it amazing, just how little has to be indicated in a painting to creat the required impression. Man you are surely getting there.
Best wishes.

Over all composition is nice Prabal, all the best for your exhibition!

gugun said...

ye too much hai . too too much. this one should definitely be part of the exhibition, no difficulty on this one ! Ekdum woh effortless defining of shapes without drawing the outline of the shapes wala cali aa gayaa hai .

how'd you know that the fields of rice were basmati rice ? :-s

Vinayak,
Thanks man.. Everyday I am learning and having fun... The journey is great and I am sure you also would be enjoying and learning everyday..

Padmaja,
Thanks. If you are in Bangalore, drop by..

Prabal said...

Gugun,
Thanks thanks a lot. For some reason I find it difficult to part with paintings which are new. So this is going to have to wait till the next exhibition. :)

And the rice is basmati for sure.. I can smell it here. :)

Gary Keimig said...

wonderfully constructed Prabal. I love the freshness of the paint and the simplicity that isn't simple.
Great job.

Prabal said...

Prabha,
It will be a pleasure to have you visit the exhibition. I'll keep you posted.

Gary,
Many thanks. To keep things simple and minimal and yet say a lot is what I strive for.
