Checkmate – part 2 is now complete and awaiting publication on iOS and Android (via MadeFire app), and web (via DeviantArt).
R. D. Burman was a legendary, game changer Bollywood musician through the decades of 70’s to 90’s, before his sudden demise in 1994.
Yesterday, an art group, of which I am a member, did a fantastic audio visual program on the life and time of the RD.
For this program, I had painted a portrait of RD, which was printed in large size and displayed in the background.
I painted this digitally in GIMP.
As the mercury has started soaring in India, and temperatures are reaching near 40 degrees Celsius in my hometown, it’s time to paint something we are so eagerly waiting for. Monsoons and the subsequent green carpets on the countryside, dotted by freshwater rivulets and streams. Drew this to cool my senses today 🙂
Painted in ArtRage Studio Pro.
This is version 1
And this is the version with rains, just as I want it to be!
