Painting a seascape
Seascape is my all time favorite subject. I have done a series on them. Painting a beach scene has always been a very relaxing experience.
The soft pastel painting below is a scene from Vaddi beach, Benaulim in South Goa. We were at this beach in monsoon last year. It is a beautiful white sandy beach and the wild creeper as seen on the right appealed to me a lot. I have also created this very scene earlier in water colour medium.

The pastels that I used for this particular painting can be seen as below. I selected these shades right at the beginning and then added more colours as and when required.
