In the Sun...Gujarat

I did a sketch of this picture soon after I took it. I am now getting ready for my first ever exhibition, and so have done a bigger version of it. I loved the moment it captured....a group of women jumping out of a over stuffed jeep, which came a halt in front of my car during a field visit in rural Gujarat last year! The memory remains, the laughter, the bright colours of their clothes, and a sense of lightness and freedom, almost, as they jumped out and sat under the tree, chattering all the time!


  1. This is lovely Brinda. You really have captured a moment in time. All the best with your exhibition, hope we get to see what you submit to it.

  2. This is a beautiful painting.

    India left two lasting and deep impressions on me - the gorgeous colors of women's clothing and the peaceful coexistence of man and animal. The women in Gangtok, Sunderban villages, and New Year's Eve Kolkatta ALL clothed themselves in beautiful fabric; and I'll never forget seeing three young men make room for a huge cow at their campfire. The group went peacefully from three warming themselves to four.
