An acrylic triad

Last time I was in Kolkata I was enchanted by the beauty of the city. I was seeing paintings everywhere. The city has a personality and it reflects even in the non-living things out there. Specially in the buildings. Both old and ancient. Sometime they look like gaunt old men, sometime like a lady twisting her body and sometimes like children playing hide and seek. I was not sure how I would do this in watercolor. So I used acrylics, which allowed me to explore end experiment while painting. And a little experimentation with perspective distortion did seem to help the cause. I hope you enjoy these.

Personality City - I : YELLOW
20x14 inch

Personality City - II : RED
20x14 inch

Personality City - III : BLUE

Lovely work Prabal! I'm going tp start using Acrylics again next year I think. It's a nice change sometimes to use other mediums isn't it! :0)
