I have been busy -I think I will post a few paintings before I go...This was done from a photo taken by my friend while on his recent trip to Leh, (India)A young Monk stares out of his window; who knows what goes through his mind...

    1. Thank you Hilda.I have been working more lately and I guess this is a glimpse of the style that is fast becoming 'me'.Earlier I made efforts to paint 'loosely' but now it has started to come naturally to me.May be 10-12 paintings more and I will be sure :)

  3. He has such a serene look, doesn't he, Arti? Perfect for his chosen vocation. And I do so love all the color. One tends to think of monasteries as drab and colorless. I see it isn't so! Wonderful job, my friend!

    1. I liked him very much,Sherry..These monasteries are full of color,as the monks were yellow and deep maroon clothes.I am yet to see one in person,though.This place is beautiful.
