pure awesomeness. I have been staring at this now for the past 5 mins. what detail .. I can't get adjectives to say how good this is ..

Wow. I love all of these Prabal. The colors are amazing and I find it so interesting to see that you still maintain your bold, spontaneous style when painting a completely different subject. Really these are just incredible. Fantastically well done! :)

Sandra Busby said...

These are fantastic! The way that the light hits across their backs - Just marvelous! :0)

Lydie said...

Wow so colorful ! I love the way you have magnified these cows. A lot of poetry in this work .

Judy said...

They are fabulous! I love the white one, but the others are great too!

Thse are all very beautiful Prabal. The white gai is best.

yasha said...

Fabulous work!

V. Deshmukh said...

On second thoughts the brown gai seems to be the best! :)
All are amazing, its difficult to chose one better than the others.

AK said...

Prabal, these are just fabulous. Love the way you have captured light on all of them.

Prabal said...

Thank you so much for such a quick comment. :)

Thanks so much. Your comment makes the painting more than what it is.

Prabal said...

Looks like I did manage to impress you. These subjects are more likely to be painted by you. So your comments mean a lot.

Kathryn Ragan,
Thank you. I am glad you liked it. And I like the 'SO' in your comment too. :)

Prabal said...

Sandra, Judy,
Thank you so much ladies.

Poetry!!! :) I loved your comment.

Prabal said...

AK Sir, Yasha,
Great to know you enjoyed these..

Thanks for your appreciation. Actually I made the white cow first. I thought I had done well, but I thought I wanted to be bolder with colors. Then I made the brown one. Though there are somethings that did not go according to the plan, but I did manage to satisfy the goal of being bolder with colors. And lastly I wanted to push myself even further and made the black one. But I think in the black one I went a bit overboard, and my techniques were also not able to support me completely there..

Dipti said...

prabal, this series of Gai paintings is amazing. I can see all the different (difficult) hues mix so well and explode in you paintings...I'd like to see you at work!

Pat said...

Prabal, these are just fabulous!

A series of cows!
I love that each is different, that you've used different backgrounds and techniques in each. They are worthy of a post apiece!
Each one has a character of its own - you've captured that so well.
Love the light, love the salt effects, really I love them all. Looking forward to more :) xx

Prabal, these are fantastic!!! I just love this series. They are all so beautiful in their own different ways.

You've mastered watercolor warm and cold, sun and shade Prabal. Wonderful paintings. I love the composition and each and every part of those cows! They are so real!
Thank you,

Kathy said...

These cows are awesome Prabal. I have never seen a white cow. Don't you just want to throw some paint on them? Happy painting :)

Art with Liz said...

Hi Prabal, absolutely love the gais! Especially that soft lovely brown one. I see you've tagged me - thank you dear friend and I'm hoping to get round to it in between everything else!

Prabal said...

Hilda, Dipti,
Thank you so much for your generous comments.

A company while painting is always great. You can join me anytime. :)

Prabal said...

Looks like you enjoyed them quiet a bit. Thank you for your appreciation.

Thank you so very much. :)

Oh yes I was paying a lot of attention to warm and cool in this series. Thank you for noticing.

Prabal said...

You should come to India. There are a lot of white cows around here. :) And many times a lot of color is thrown on them too. LOL.

Thank a lot. And yes I did tag you. Hope to see the post someday. :)

Sadia said...
