A view from Komic village in Himachal - soft pastel painting

We were touring some beautiful towns in Himachal in 2013. Komic village was one of them. We went by road climbing uphill to one of the highest villages of Asia ( 4513 mts above sea level ) and the route upwards enabled us to see a stunning view of the mountain peaks around and the valley below. We started our ride from KAZA where we had booked our hotel for the night stay.

The soft pastel painting below is one scene from Komic village, where we could see the mountains across. The chilly winds were blowing across the hills and the timeless beauty of the place cannot be described in words. We could just about spot a few houses scattered across the dry land and the religion followed is primarily Buddhism. I am planning to do more art works based on my Himachal trip.

Painting mountains is something new to me. Anything new in the beginning is always intimidating.
But with time things always get better.
