One of the roles of art is to show the viewer another way of seeing - this painting is an abstracted version of a lush summer garden.
Alcohol ink is a very free flowing and vibrant medium - a pleasure to work with and look at.  Of course the final version looks a bit different as i worked on it after taking the photo.

Hampi is a village and temple town recognized as a UNESCO world heritage site.The site has many small, stray temples along with larger centers of worship -  all under the Govt. 's protection for conservation and stabilization of temple structures.
I am more interested in painting the almost abandoned stray places of worship. They have a serene beauty, situated in an exceptionally beautiful landscape and covering a vast area of approx 100 miles on the banks of the Tungabhadra river.
