A mud hole in arid areas of Rajasthan, or a large crater lake in Lonar, Buldana District, Maharashtra: I guess an aerial view would look a bit like this:
What a surprise it is to suddenly find a treasure house of clean water, in the middle of parched land! This painting shows such a precious find of clear, cool water. It is a 30" X 30" oil on canvas painting.
Smooth brush strokes have been used to paint the water, and knife and palette work is used to show the different texture of the surroundings.
On display at my ongoing exhibition at the Lalit Kala Akademi, New Delhi till the 1st November.
