Retired hurt.

     Flying for the off shore oil and gas sector keeps me close to the coast and big and small harbors. Also watching small fishing boats fighting the raging waves has instilled in me a lot of respect for the sea men. Hence this is another in the series of boats that I have been painting. These two old fishing trawlers were waiting to be broken down or probably repaired. Found it an interesting subject and managed a quick water color sketch. Just tried to capture the atmosphere of the docks. Hope I have succeeded. 


  1. You certainly caught the atmosphere of the docks, AK! Beautiful work and I love your previous Cherry Blossoms.....a definite winner!

  2. Hi, AK, congrats, very beautiful and you captured the mood well!! Always your colours are lovely.
    Kind regards, Sadami

  3. A wonderful composition. Your speed of use has made the painting so fresh and full of life. You have a real talent with watercolour.

  4. Bonjour cher ami,

    Bravo pour cette belle aquarelle. L'atmosphère des ports de marchandises est fascinant.
    Vous avez su merveilleusement bien capturer cette ambiance.

    ❀ ♡ Gros bisous ♡ ❀

  5. Wonderful painting, Asit! I love the muted colors, and you have captured the animation of the scene and the old ships in dry-dock beautifully.

  6. This is extremely beautiful AK. I have heard a lot about the off shore oil and gas platforms from my Chemical Engineer Husband, he would love to see this painting.

    1. Thanks a lot Padmaja. Hope he liked it.
