Old Boat Near the Emerald Sea

Old wooden boat by the emerald sea. Two of my most favourite things in one picture ๐Ÿ™‚. I started this a month ago, then was about to discard it as a failed attempt!

But I somehow kept working on it, and I am so glad I did ๐Ÿ™‚. It slowly started getting back to life and became better and better.

Oil on canvas, 18″ X 24″.

Then did this quick little Jaswanda flower knife painting with the leftover oil paints.

Kathakali

Kathakali is an a folk dance which originated the south Indian state of Kerala. ย The song-dance-act performance is made unique by the colorful makeup and interesting costume worn by (predominantly male) dancers.

I did this oil painting of a Kathakali dancer over a course of few days. Painting the details of the costume was a challenge, although a pleasant one!
