A Delhi based contemporary watercolorist, Shankar refuses to admit that water is colorless, shapeless and odorless. This occurred to him when he joined the Art College at Kolkata. There he picked a brush, dipped it in color and turned to the blank canvas for the first time. Ever since, he has never looked back.
Shankar believes that there are countless artistic souls trying to capture the beauty of nature on their blank canvases. Whether it’s a clear sky, a landscape or a flock of birds heading home at dusk, the picture simply doesn’t leave you. Hours later, you desperately try to bring that out on your canvas. But unfortunately, the end result doesn’t please you. Reason –The absence of knowledge of using watercolors. So, watercolors are like a dream and bring your pictures to life.
Shankar also added that watercolors are difficult to use because usage of watercolors demands certain amount of expertise. Watercolor paintings depend on the feeling of light and shadow of an object from nature. Watercolor paintings are considered a unique way, to creatively represent dreams, illusions, emotions, and bright feelings using water-soluble pigments. Hence, they call for a great deal of precision and control. Sankar has listed 64 water colour paintings for sale on Gallerist.in.
