PLEIN AIR logo.png


Nature is full of infinite imagery! Especially India! India is visually chaotic but still beautiful and Plein Air is a tool to push me to break new ground. Going outdoor makes me experience, learn, capture and express the beauty around me through my paintings. To me, Plein Air is a meditative process, that helps me become one with nature, have fun and forget the material world around me.  

All these are rapid paintings done on location to capture the essence/spirit of the scene, rather than its details. As an animator, sometimes I simplify forms and colours or exaggerate a bit to make the painting expressive. I believe this is a great process to develop my work and focus on the important aspects in a composition. All the learning from this process is reflected in my work.
