Comments:For my paintings I draw inspiration from nature, day to day life, and my experiences. So in general I do a lot of landscapes and a little bit of still lifes, cityscapes and what I call as lifescapes. I paint in a simplistic, realistic yet loose style which invites the viewer to 'feel' my work, rather than just see it. I put a lot of stress on tonal composition and like to play with colors to provide the feel. Play of light also is a major part of my paintings.
