One of my last paintings for my upcoming Art Exhibition

For my upcoming Fourth solo Art Exhibition at Gallerie Leela, I had set a target of certain number of paintings and I have just about completed it.Now it is time to look into the invitation cards and framing of my artworks.

Therefore I can now take a break and indulge in other study works in different mediums which I am longing to do since long. One thing which is definite on my mind is to try out a landscape in my way on canvas using acrylic paints. I have done landscape paintings in acrylic paints earlier but it was mostly the technique of applying thick acrylic coats. What I want to try out now is using Camel acrylic paints in slightly dilute form.

The image below is a scene from Coorg while we were taking a walk. Everyday we would look out for a new path or road and then walk for miles soaking in the beauty of the surroundings.This road had a climb uphill and was densely populated with trees and shrubs on either side.

I made a decision to stop working on this painting after a point of time so as to avoid over usage of colours. I may add a few touch ups just before framing.
