Waves

Chennai city has the longest beach in India and naturally, the sea has been an inspiration for creative pursuits. I have always been tempted to capture the energy of the waves on canvas and attempted a couple of paintings to achieve this effect. This work was completed in a day with acrylic paint on canvas using palette knife and brush. I have used only three colors – French ultramarine, cobalt blue and titanium white. In this painting, I have managed to capture the splash of water as the waves rise and fall. This work was sold by Victoria Technical Institute in 2003.
