A person like me, who is not a professional artist, often faces the dilemma .... 'to paint or not to paint'. Distractions like TV often try to dissuade one from picking up the brush. But once in a while comes a subject which galvanizes you into motion. This simple pic of this old boat was one of them. The painting was done in a little over an hour. Was not entirely satisfied with the results but was happy. What say.....?
I have been missing from my blog for some time but it is not that I have not been painting at all. Did this painting of an Alouette-III helicopter fitted with floats. This aircraft is capable of landing on water. Flying it was a pleasure. Gives you the pleasure of flying as well as sailing ! Was even paid a visit by two Dolphins once when we had landed off the Gujarat coast. That is an experience only some lucky sailors get. Anyway a friend wanted me to do this for him... was more than happy to oblige.
