Hyderabad is blessed with rock landscapes. You can notice rock landscapes around the city as they are 2500 million old as per the geological survey. They speak in silence and evoke the inner emotions. They became a well composed subject for me to paint. Bushes that grow near the rocks make the combination of burnt sienna, scarlet and sap green colours along with the bare blue sky. Various shapes and forms of these hard and rough textured rocks are gently touching the layers of my heart.

Due to the urbanization of city these rock hills slowly diminishing into the past.

This particular painting named “stacked” is the first one on this subject, and I would like to continue for few more compositions further.

Hi friends, after long time I am blogging, its time to work after the solo show. Yesterday I have got the flat brush set of  Daler-Rowney  Filbert,Round,FlatPaint Brush set and Lefranc & Bourgeois Louvre Wood palette which was ordered from Flipkart.

Hair of the brushes is hard and rough, it works to put thick pigment strokes on the gesso board. Another thing is I always like to use long brushes they are comfortable to hold.

I have ordered for wooden pallet, wood is very light weight comfortable to hold. Generally I use glass as palette, but I just wanted to give a try.
