Dear Friends --

Wish you a very Happy New Year ahead! May all your wishes (within reasonable limits!) - come true :)

Some sketches done on a recent trip to a small beach side village in India (this belt is called "Konkan belt")

A large copper cylindrical "vessel" - used to heat water. The water is used for bathing. Of-course Indian villages have electricity and water heaters now - but in these small villages - this is still used as a mode for heating water!!

Electricity is still relatively expensive in India - and this is a cheaper mechanism!

Truly masterful - you just jumped to a new level! They combine excellent color, composition, perspective, and sensitive drawing with the deep feeling for the visual world that you always bring to your work. Several of these, with their strong designs and rich colors, would work well as larger pieces.

Lovely work, Rajesh. You're leaping ahead every month; these are all at such a high level. To pick out a technical detail, I like the perspective of "machan", a difficult thing to start from overhead. And the shadow below it, super.

Oh thank you so much Matthew, Andre and Moonshadowe!!

It's always good to hear and know if you are actually improving.
