Glimpses of Konkan Through My Sketchbook

I spent the last 5 days in Konkan, the beautiful coastal area of the Maharashtra state where I reside. It was a different world, with endless scenic vistas, rustic life in villages, and best of all .. no cell phone coverage!

These are some of the glimpses of Konkan through my sketchbook.

Autumn Lake

I am always fascinated by the riot of colors that is the season of fall. The bright red, yellow, orange hues against the normal greens and blues of nature are quite fascinating. Coupled with the crisp, cool air and bright blue skies, it never ceases to create picture perfect opportunities.

This oil painting is a bow to the nature, which is the greatest artist of all!
