The place in this painting is Takmachik village in Ladakh. Alleys are always very nice to paint. And this one also had the perfect lighting along with very beautiful houses and those flower vases on the windows.

I'll be on a break for a week and hence will be absent from blogsphere. See you all after a week. Till then enjoy this one.

Title - Takmachik
Size - 22 x 16 inch

Wow Prabal, I seem to have missed so much again!! Absolutely beautiful this one. Just everything about it - the composition, the shadows, that intense blue of the sky! And those amazing white walls. Also loved your doodles. Enjoy your break!

Dubai Apartments,
First of all thanks for liking my blog. And I also appreciate the fact that you left a comment for me.

Its always good to get a comment from you. And the fact that this painting reminds you of Andulasia makes me happier.

Anudeepa, Crystal
The subject itself was so beautiful that I really did not have to try.

Thanks for noticing that stone wall suggestion. I just added it quiet intutively and enjoyed doing that.
