Boats in Cochin!

The exciting thing is that I have booked a gallery for my first ever exhibition! I am doing it jointly with Jyoti David. She is a more experienced artist and we try and get together every Saturday to paint! Now that we have committed ourselves I have 8 months to get some decent work done!
An artist friend said that one should only paint something when it moves you and touches your heart! These boats in Kerala certainly did! There is something fascinating about boats, especially the country ones we have in India.... of so many varieties as well! The combination of the water and the boat, the stillness and calm of the moment, filled me with a feeling of wanting to capture the here it is....


  1. This is a gorgeous painting Brinda, you have captured the reflections so well too. Good for you booking a gallery space and such a grand idea to share with a friend, that's very encouraging for you both. Hope we get to see some of your work during the coming months.

  2. That's exciting about your first exhibition. This painting is lovely!!! Nice lights and darkss and your figures came out good. I like the depth in this too. Boating is such a great subject.

  3. Oh Brinda, I am so pleased for you. I am sure you have marvellous work already for the exhibit and will create more. I wish I could come and see! All best wishes for you.

  4. very beautiful painting. please let me know when you will exhibit in cochin?
