One from my hometown!

Falls at Thirumoorthy Hills, Coimbatore District (Tamil Nadu, India)


This is a very nostalgic painting. This is a small waterfalls very close to my town where many a Sunday afternoons were spent in college days. Just stand under the falls and the thudding water gives you a very good massage to your whole body, it has medicinal values too. It is real heaven sent on a very hot day(which usually is), you just do not feel like leaving the water! I thought I should revive the memories of yore!Have a look at the reference photo above.

Here is my version in painting, followed closely to the reference, without any composition changes.
Half sheet of Bockingford 425gms rough surface (good for the rock texture). Used a credit card to scrape out the rocks when the paint was wet. SAA artist paints used. As always, comments and criticisms welcome! Thanks for looking!

  1. appa, this is a very nice painting, i like the rocks and the foliage but the waterfalls can be improved and you can maybe show some of the rock behind the waterfalls to make it more realistic. great painting though.
