This is my grandson Eshaan. From the day he was born, he has become my darling angel. What a pleasant feeling when we look into baby's face, eyes, and beautiful smiles. I can forget everything and just keep on looking at his face. I have been dreaming about this day but I never thought I will be so deeply enjoying my grandson! What a peace to my life!

Portrait comission

The portrait is complete and I am ready to let it go to its home. I got so attached to this portrait because of the story behind it. A lovely present to his partner from Donall.  She is pregnant and he wants to imagine how his family will look when the baby turns into a teenager. I thought this is a wonderful idea! So I ended up with my imagination about the unborn girl's facial features as a teenager, their son who is about 4-5 yrs old, and added some age to the couple. This is something completely imaginative and I am  surprised and thrilled with the finished painting!I think this is a great idea to put it on canvas. I fully enjoyed working on this painting. Thank you Donall for involving me and comissioning this portrait.

My latest Portrait comission

After a long gap I started working on my latest portrait commission. I love the warmth, the reddish skintones and the darks! While waiting for my garndson, I worked on this commission. I thought may be I wont be able to complete it in time. But I think my garndson is cooperating with me. here I am still waiting for him.

This painting has a story. Love to hear some comments, and I will write the story soon.

Image of the day

This is one in my list to paint. A Beautiful girl playing Piano. Love the picture, background every thing about it.


Waiting for the images! I should be ready within couple of days for my Portrait a day series. I am excited and love to start.

Painting keeps me energetic and alive! My thoughts always surrounded by how can I interpret this subject, how can i get this effect, how well i can present it, what colors I will go with, How can I portray her!

I lost contact with my good friend Jenna. I offered her that I will paint her daughter some time, and now I have time but where is she!!!

A Portrait a day!

These are some of the portraits I painted.

These are some samples of my work. I will be working on more impressionistic style.  Contact me for details.  E mail here

Working on a portrait

I am in USA and started working on a portrait. Happy to be back to my place and start painting.
I tweaked this image in photoshop before I started working on this. Working with darks and using only 3 colors!
I had taken this picture on a street on our way to Araku valley. He wss riding a bicycle and I noticed this man with beard and nice sharp features. I had to stop the car, and asked this person if I can do his portrait. He was more than happy to let me take his pictures and appreciated my interest.
Your comments will be appreciated.
