Soft pastel painting of a landscape from Coorg by Manju Panchal


This is a beautiful scene that we came across while we were on our

artists as well as photographers.

Heroes


These are two heroes, true heroes on screen and behind screen...
The first (Albert Einstein) is known for his calmness and second (Nana Patekar) for his dynamism but both are fully capable of producing enormous amount of energy; mentally and physically.
Here I have tried to colour their personalities.

Morning walk in Coorg - Soft pastel painting by Manju Panchal

I am a self taught artist based at Andheri, Mumbai. This is my first post in this blog and I am grateful to Arti Chauhan to include me as a member here.

The painting below is of a beautiful landscape as seen in Coorg, a hill station in Karnataka, where we
spent our holidays on three different occasions. It is an amazing place with coffee plantations and lush green surroundings. I have used soft pastels to create this art work on Fabriano Tiziano paper.

Presently I am busy creating landscape paintings for my upcoming solo exhibition in Gallerie Leela, Andheri East, Mumbai. Inspired and motivated by the beauty of nature, I am using my personal plein air sketches and photographs to create my works.
