Watercolour on Arches 300 gsm watercolour paper
Size: Full Imperial

Its from recollection of Berijam lake in Kodaikanal. Visited it sometime back... although you may not exactly find such a place there... but you will find such a place in almost every lake or river that we humans have not encroached upon.
A view like this cleanses your heart and mind and recreates you as as a person standing much more closer and connected to everything around... everything natural and beautiful.... not to the i-pod and the laptop!
Lets enjoy the peace while it lasts, for , I know for certain - we have still not learnt anything from our past!!!

This is one of my favourite watercolour works... I was very happy with the outcome and the feel of being in the midst of serene forest and the clear misty air... with birds chirping and resting on branches...

excellent composition, masterful handling of negative spaces, and a great piece of work !

Only expecting the croc to suddenly emerge from the still water and violently attack the viewer ( sorry just saw "lake placid"!!!!).

Still waters run deep!

Amazing work and becoming one with nature!!!

Admire the use of blue for the mild background and the trees. Love the way reflection is done
