At the Railway Station

The last time I painted in a railway station was probably before two years. There is something about the nature of railway stations that is always so interesting to paint. I really cant point what exactly it is. May be its the sound of a train approaching the station or leaving it, the burst in noise levels when a train arrives. People having reached their destination or people trying to get to their destinations. The hawkers becoming very active upon the arrival of a train and then just waiting for the next one. The wide open spaces, the wires hanging in parallel to the tracks which seem to be moving somehow. Whatever it is there is always so many interesting things happening in a railway station. 
After a long time I returned to the station and enjoyed myself absolutely.

Few More..

Here are a few more WC sketches as I had promised in my last post. A couple of them have resulted in very moody paintings. More on that later...

Watercolor sketches

I dont always do a watercolor sketch before doing a painting. But generally I do it if I am not very conversant with subject or I have not been able to resolve the subject in mind. And sometimes I do it just for fun.

I never use fresh paper for these sketches. I use the unpainted side of paintings which have not made the cut (which gives me quiet a bit of paper to play with. ;)). And I do them quick and sometimes in a couple in parallel. And these are never bigger than half of a quarter sheet.

Here are few WC sketches. I'll post a few more in my next post.

Winter Light III and IV

Here are the last 2 from my winter light (mini)series. While the last two had a dominant color, these two are mostly about the grays. The second one was a challenge as I was trying to depict the very first light of the day which hits the earth even before sun is visible on the horizon. The light is trying to break out of the haze of the winter morning. Such a difficult light to capture. But I was happy with how it turned out.

Winter Light Series

The other series along with working class series that I was working on is now done. The series is called Winter Light. The winters here are the best time in the year in terms of temperature and humidity. The temperature is usually between 25 degree to 12 degrees. The quality of light is drastically different from how it is in summers. Its quiet soft especially in the mornings. In this series I have captured the light of different phases of winter mornings. Here are two of them. The rest I'll post in my next post. Thank for viewing.

Adding one more from my working class series here. This one came out quiet different. The subject also I thought was really different from my usual subjects. I did quiet like the final outcome. Hope you guys like it too.
