Argyle cottage, Bangalore

While in Bangalore, we stopped by my old friend Maya Tharaken's 111 year old Bangalore Bungalow.....Argyle cottage on Rest House Road, for a pitcher of beer on a Sunday afternoon. It was so reminiscent of those good old days in Bangalore. Here is the watercolour from that afternoon.

So it's our fourth year of Artstack. If you're in Bombay, join us on Saturday for a night of fun. May 14th 2011.
I'm doing a series of watercolours on the old homes of Bandra. 
Hope to see you there.

Old Homes of Bandra

I'm doing a series of watercolours on the old homes of Bandra. These gorgeous homes that I've been documenting in Bandra West, are testaments to our heritage. Stunning buildings that carry the nostalgia of our past, sometimes tucked away in little lanes.....they bring a bit of peace and humble respite to the monsters being built all around. What started with simple chronicles of the facades of these charming buildings, I was slowly invited to enjoy being inside some of these homes, and feel the soul of structures that are more than a hundred years old.

The watercolours will be exhibited at the upcoming ART ST4CK, on Saturday, May 14th.

Moonlight in Benares

I never did put up the complete set of 28 postcards that I did for a show at kriti gallery in Benares, 2007. This set of 28 postcards of the moon cycle, from new moon, to full moon, to new moon, were painted under moonlight in Varanasi. A limited edition set of prints were done and sold there for a while. Here's the full set.....not in any particular order.
