Sometimes its a happy thing when your camera doesnt act the way you want it to,.. or what are watercolour and brushes for! This is an impression of The Supersonics gig I went for last week, held at (no prizes for guessing) Hard Rock Cafe, Pune. It was an energetic show, full of colour and youth, and the promise of a kickass band reunion (they were hibernating for close to 3 years). And what a comeback it has been 🙂
Left to right – Rohan (guitar, backing vocals), Avinash (drums), Ananda (vocals, guitar) and Nitin (bass, not in the composition but present in spirit)
Blast from the past – these watercolours were done in ’97 (as far as I remember).. when I could still draw.. *sigh*
A week before my semester II jury, I’ve been doing everything but projects and documentation. This is a CD cover for a personal music compilation, using water colour and poster paint.
Note: Rubina is a beautifully written music piece by Joe Satriani, from the album ‘The Beautiful Guitar’
Finally managed to get this idea on paper. Recently started water colouring again, and wanted to play with light and dark tones. This particular idea was inspired by a trip to Mayavati in Kumaon, back in 2001. It was a particularly mean winter, and our only hope for survival was a tiny fireplace. This painting is of a scene that should’ve been. The actual scene was not so cosy.
A random late night work, just for kicks! I was alone in the room that night, imagining that the “ghost of the little girl” was looking at me from the ceiling. I stared so long that I started seeing colourful blobs..
