Lady Percussionists; A teenage study in poster color on paper

Lady Percussionists

These ‘Lady Percussionists’ render an age of black and white into a colorful teenage version of my photo realistic study in poster color painting on paper

The ‘Lady Percussionists’ is primarily a work on photorealism in poster color on paper.During my teenage(25years back) it was done as a study on nice photographs available with print media since the visual media was not much prominent and the main sources were the magazines and dailies in the student days.But I think the application of colors and the distribution of them among the forms under different tones of lights and shades proved more profound and interesting then.I think this ladies attempting on the percussion instruments is still illuminates the memory and colors of my teenage that had turned a nice black and white into a colorful subject of painting!

The milky waterfall called ‘PALARUVI’. an early watercolor of Sreelal T Viswanathan

In 1990 while I was a student,on the first weeks of the December, we had made a trip to ‘PALARUVI’, a place in the eastern hills in our district of the southern Kerala.The place is called so after the waterfall of that nature,literally,the milky stream.Then I had no camera with me and so I had made some sketches of the waterfall and then put it in watercolors on paper as shown here:'PALARUVI'
