This is the portrait of my son in Navratri traditional dress. I would like to share that Navratri is one of my favorite festivals. I enjoy dancing (Dandiya & Garaba ) in Navratri all nine days.

watercolor on paper 9.5x13 inches
Whenever i wander the green's i feel great, i admire, the artist who created this beautiful world, and i always try to imitate the anonymous artist but i always fail to, in the end i am left with only one answer every artwork is a artist's own Avatar, and yet i am jealous again of the artist who created this beautiful world.

We are featuring here a talented India-born artist who has made his mark in the world outside- Siddarth Katragadda.I am giving him space here as I believe he represents what is the essence of "Artist of India".
Born in the Bangalore, India, he now lives with his wife and two children in San Diego, California.
Painting since he was 10, Siddarth paints colorful and elaborately dressed, voluptous, dark Indian women, paying equal attention to their omnipresent bindis and resplendent ornaments as he does to their draped saris and brilliant blouses. His portraits are as abstract as they are figurative. He tends to abstract away from facial features, and lays more emphasis on the way a culture has sculpted the woman as a whole, especially the colors, which are depicted in brightest of colors - reds, saffrons and yellows – the most essential Indian colors.
His paintings are featured on Art Walk-San Diego, IndianArtCollectors.com, Mixture ShowRoom-San Diego, Gallery Asian Art, TeamGallery and IndianPainters.net. He remains a self-taught artist by choice.
You may see his work at his site

Higham Hills Cottage, Watercolour on Paper, (9" x 15")
Most of the novels I read have made me dream about England and the english country life. I love to surf with Google Street View and visit places I can only dream of. I cam across this view in one of these "visits" ;) I used Fabriano paper for the first time today and found it a little too absorptive for my taste.
All comments and critiques are most welcome. To see my other works please visit http://deshmukh-art.blogspot.in/

watercolor on handmade paper 7.5x14painting green's is something which keeps me concerned in the artwork, peculiarly Indian village scenes which are different, with some beautiful coalition of yellow's and blue's, the above painting was studio painted after taking a image reference though many changes were made , i kept it fresh and bright to get a feeling of sunny day in the monsoon's, a rare situation though its one of the beautiful aspect to witness during monsoons.... with the novelty of the rain and the luminance of the sun.
