Rich & Poor

Recently I’m spending more time on Still Life painting and Anatomy study. Two weeks back I started teaching Still Life Painting, though I am at student level and still need to learn a lot. But after one or two classes I realize that I’m also learning a lot with them, maybe because I myself have to be more prepared and clear about Fundamentals of art before teaching others.

Girl with Oranges - Sold

My native place is Nagpur and it is very famous for its Oranges, there is an interesting story how the cultivation of Nagpur orange started. The cultivation of Nagpur orange was tested for the first time as a kitchen garden plant during 1896 by Late Shri. Raghujiraje Bhonsle and observed as a successful venture. Since then, its cultivation attained momentum year after year and by now, it is claimed to be one of the most remunerative potential foreign exchange earning crops of not only this region but also as one of the horticultural crops after mango and banana at national level.

So when season comes you can see that almost every house is field with Oranges and every person in the family contributes in sorting and packing Oranges before sending it to the main market. In my school days I have seen this scenario in most of the villages around Nagpur.

Kitchen Work

People and their life around me always inspired to take the subject for my paintings.

This is the subject I found at my home at the corner of my leaving room, light coming from window where dining table was kept, vegetables and pots were lying on the table and I thought it made a perfect scene for the painting.
