This is very nice! I think I prefer this version to the previous one because it has more of a tonal quality. The other has nice color harmony, and I usually resonate more with blues...but this one works better in my opinion...humble as it is :)

Both treatments are really gorgeous, but I prefer this one. The colors are musical. Plus, I like the open space. There seems to be more air to breathe here. Beautiful stuff.

Your painting is good on Canvas. It took me to my old days in Mahabalipuram. I had been few years before recently. I felt the old beauty has gone because of the fencing around and etc. Again they are collecting money to see the shore temple. I remember one of the foreigner commenting "All the temples in India need to be looked from outside. They are beautiful. There is nothing much to go closer and look after having paid a 10 dollar entrance fee." He was right.

This one is great. Love the bold colors and reminds me strongly of dusk in India. Beautiful!!

Both are good. But I like this one better. Maybe b'cos of the colors n tonal quality. This has a dreamlike quality than the first one which looks more real.

Arvindh, I just love this... the colors are magnificent (my favorites)

Ujwala said...

Arvindh this looks great! I like both too but prefer this one as there is a lot more of you in it, the composition is nice and there is a dreamlike quality with the reflection of the temple in the water.

I think both are beautiful. I would love to see a full moon in the sky in the second pic though. :-)

Great job!!!

Hi Arvindh, been traveling so much that I have been ignorong my blog and have not visited others in a while.

There's a link at the end of my page, pannasamatta or something, this site gives you some very well designed templates. I have absolutely no knowledge of html. You have to download the template, copy the code they give and paste it on your template setting after completely deleting the html code of your existing template. While deleting your existing code you do not lose any of your posts and pictures. Tamplate has nothing to do with your posts.

Now you have a new template. The new template has a couple of images. delete those images and put your own design. Change colour, please see my new 'daylight again' design

Arvindh, please believe me, i have absolutely no knowledge of any computer language. Don't even know what is inside, no clue what so ever. What ever I do any monkey can do and it can do better.

If you give me your images I can do it for you. Perhaps next month. Some times the new google blogger does not accept new template. Its moody. It worked well with old blogger.
Thank you so much Arvindh

Wow! Love the way you've played with the different shades of yellow and that tree giving the thing sort of a frame. Nice work!

hi aravindh,

simply amazing, you still preserve the authenticity of the temple in your painting. Never seen or been to that temple but can feel the peacefulness by only looking at it. Keep up the good work. Luv all your outputs.
