Innocence by Riya Rathore

Oil Painting on Canvas

Last year on our way to Kerela, I came across these beautiful bamboo forests while crossing Nagerhole National Park, Karnataka. I just loved the scene and thought of doing some work using bamboo trees in the background.

I am happy to share this new work of mine "INNOCENCE"  which I have completed today based on this theme. Feel glad to post on "Artist of India" after a long gap.  Please share your feedback and suggestions.

The painting is available on

Oil (15" x 11")

This is a portrait of our teacher (mine and Sujit's), Mr. Ambadas Mahurkar. He was a renowned watercolourist in Hyderabad and elsewhere. He was so prolific that even at the age of 74, he would paint 5 or 6 watercolours a day. Its been a privilege to study under him.

Used and Forgotten - Prabal Mallick

Title - Used and Forgotten
Size - 18 inch x 12 inch
Medium - Watercolor on paper
Year - 2009
Status - Available

The title of the painting explains the painting completely. I had made it as a metaphor to almost everything that is 'used and forgotten' including human beings. This was at display in the last exhibition in July this year. A gentleman took a lot of time at this painting and came to me and congratulated me. And then he discussed about it for sometime from which I could gather that he had understood the intended metaphor in the painting. I was indeed very happy because I knew there is at least one person who understood the thought process behind this painting. Well now you also know. :)

'Retired'-- by Vinayak Deshmukh

Watercolor (15" x 20")

Did this one from a photograph on an old, out of use industrial tractor. Old, rusted machinery somehow always appeals to me. 
All comments and critiques are most welcome.
