A Sidestreet In Madurai
The second painting of my somewhat truncated and problematical trip to India last year. I have deliberately kept it busy (actually the sidestreets in Madurai are much more chaotic) and colourful to try and get across the visual impact that India has. I have noticed that there are a number of artists including Ken Howard that have been painting India so I am hoping that after a number of abortive attempts at selling paintings of "exotic" places that I am finally in the Zeitgeist and will paint some more and then approach some galleries (and maybe enter some competitions) with them. I feel that I have moved on a bit in how I am painting these days, mainly thanks to the small two-day paintings that got me working looser and faster. The next one I think will be a scene of chaos in the rush hour (all the day I reckon), probably from the back of a bicycle rickshaw. 18" x 36" oil on board.
