Early morning at Matheran - Soft pastel painting

A morning walk through the muddy pathways of Matheran ( Hill station close to Mumbai ), the sunlight diffusing through the dense foliage, lighting up some parts of the forest floor.

The more I paint NATURE, the more it inspires me. Everything out there seems so perfect. Since vehicles are not allowed in this hill station, there are no permanent roads and everytime one sets out, one has to walk through some muddy pathway which has trees lined up all around. In addition there are rocks, slopes, twigs broken branches which all add up to make for a good composition.
