Back in In my studio after 3 incredible weeks painting in Rajasthan. Back home, it seems weirdly quiet and grey as if the colour and volume buttons have been turned right down.
One English couple last week described India as the greatest show on earth and I couldn’t agree more. It’s got such spirit!
It was both a delight and frustration to explore the extraordinary, delicious and unexpected clashing bright glorious colours that pop up everywhere. The extremes and contrasts make this a beguiling and fascinating place to get out your easel and go! The light is consistent but everything else is up for grabs.
The noise, joy, smells, frenetic activity and contrasting peace.
Why India is a great place to paint:
Consistent and beautiful light
Incredible sunrise and sunsets
The unexpected - always keeps you on your toes!
Health and safety goes out of the window
Sense of humour
You live in the present
More work coming up!
