Short spell @ Church street

Title - Short Spell @ Church Street
Size - 22 x 15 inch
Medium - Watercolor on paper

Bangalore has a very strange weather pattern. In one day one can experience 3 different types of weathers. Hot scorching sun in the day followed by rains, followed by chilly nights. And since 2 weeks we are having rains almost everyday. In short spells though.. Rains in November..November rains.. Reminds me of Guns and Roses. :). Anyway here is to Bangalore rains.

Great Prabal. I've heard about the beauty of Banglore. But I claim I know it cause I visited Mombay, Hayderabad and Pune. Your watercolor is stuffed with life and love , you make it near to me. Congrats.

LOVE this piece Prabal. LOVE, love, love, love, looooove. The mood is just incredible. I feel like I'm right there. :))) So much awesomeness is hard to contain in one painting but you pull it off like a rock star (although one much cooler than Guns n Roses). ;)

Crystal Cook said...

Not that there's anything wrong with Guns n Roses. :)

Pat said...

This is stunning! I love that rainy sky and those gorgeous reflections! Bravo, Prabal xx

Prabal said...

Anand sir,
Great to get a comment from you. Thank you so much.

Syed,
If you have visited Mubai, Hyderabad and Pune that means you can visualize 80% of Bangalore. Thank you for liking it.

Prabal said...

Michelle and Isabel,
Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving a comment for me. I appreciate it.

Carol,
yes. I am staying dry. getting wet means definitely catching cold. :)

Anu,
Thank you for your kind comment.

Prabal said...

Carol,
Rockstar.. Wow.. I always dreamt of becoming one. Anyway I am so glad you liked it. By the way there are coffee shops all over this street. And it is really awesome to sit in one of those coffee shops and watch the rain from there.

Guns and Roses were the best and really cool till they spilt up. Axl Rose and Slash together meant magic. But like all good things that magic came to an end. :(

Prabal said...

Kathryn,
I am glad that you enjoyed this. I hope you are getting a lot of sun out there..

Pat,
Thank you so much. After you said it I look at the sky and it does look good to me. Till now I thought I had overdone it. :)

Sandra said...

Wow, Prabal you make watercolour look effortless - and yet of course it really isn't at all easy. You have truly mastered the medium and this painting proves it. Its fresh, i's lively and glows with light. Wonderful! :0)
