watercolour sketches-Konkan area

Konkan is a coastal area near Pune, at 4 hours car drive distance.I go there every 6 months for painting. after painting some spots, i also sketch in watercolour with out using pencil atall.

The houses in Konkan area have sloping roofs to take care of heavy rains with wind.Every house has a verandah, a semi open space outside for hot seasons.These spaces are multipurpose, used as entrance lobby, storage ares , sleeping ares and some times even for goats and cows.

the entire ares is full of paddy fields and coconnut groves.I just love the rustic feeling of such places.

  1. Hi,
    I really loved the loose and effective style of your watercolours. The kokan sketches are really beautiful. Mahalakshmi mandirachya dwaracha chitrahi sundar ahe.
