Parked Free

Everyday as I go to the basement of my apartment I see this kiddie's bike parked (for free of course :) ). It has been raining now a days. And the pool of still water created a lot of interest in the scene. I have been thinking of painting this scene from a long time and finally I did. And I am glad that I did.

watercolor - parked free
Title - Parked Free
Size - 15 x 19 inch
Medium - Watercolor on paper.

This painting has sunshine, rain and a cycle and I cant help but write a few lines from a Hindi movie song.

"Give me some sunshine, give me some rain
give me another chance, I wanna grow up once again."

Prabal, it's lovely. The reflection of the bike in the puddle makes the painting. You've done a great job on the translucent fabrics, too.

Carol Blackburn said...

Gorgeous work Prabal. I love that reflection, and the story behind it is what makes it I think, including that song. Very cool :)
