I love painting outdoors and some of my favorite times is Spring and Summer when I can paint anything boats, waterfronts, beach and sand. There is something majestic about ocean life to me and something soothing as well. I have a collection to share of some of my favorite paintings that are watercolors. Let me know if you have a favorite boat, beach house, or commercial building like hotels or boardwalks that you would like painted. I can be commissioned for those year round.
I had done few Mumbai watercolor paintings back in 2012. I was there visiting my family. My watercolor setup is highly portable: I can paint almost anywhere! Of course, it was not easy painting in Mumbai. It was difficult to control the paint due to humidity. Back in my studio, it is relatively easier and I am able to paint on bigger scale. Here are two recent paintings of the Gateway Of India. The first one is full sheet and the second one is half sheet. The Gateway of India is a busy place! And it was HOT when I was there. Mumbai never slows down and only slightly cools down during the winter. Both the originals are sold but prints are available. I am working on more paintings of Mumbai. I have also done several paintings of my hometown of Amreli. I will be posting those next.
