Chitrakut Falls, Oil on Canvas (24" x 30")
This is a painting of the beautiful Chitrakut Waterfalls in Chattisgarh. I did this from one of my wife's photographs. It has taken me nearly 2 weeks to complete this piece. The main problem I think was that if I do not paint for a couple of days, I would have to repaint everything to get that wet-in-wet continuity in the painting. Its been my experience that oil paintings dry a lot faster in summer than they do in winter. Special note must be taken of this especially when working on medium to large sized works which require more than one session.
Have you also experienced this? Can anyone tell me how one can get around this problem? All critiques and comments are welcome.
Thanks for visiting.
