INDIA









I was commissioned to create this really big painting ( 60 x 30 ) for a family dinning room. My only guidelines were to make something India inspired. After viewing many beautiful reference images of different parts of India, I'm determined to travel there at some point in my life. It makes me happy knowing my work is on permanent display at Mistry family home.

Momo: India has a very distinct style, so it made my job easier interpreting it :o)

Neysa: i went through hell getting those clean lines, i used a lot of drafting tape and a lot of waiting for things to dry.

Sanjay: Your work is the jaw dropper!
