Watercolour painting on paper

This is my recent painting on Chandannagar. I have used watercolour and pen in this painting. First I made the initial sketch with pen and then applied the watercolour paints. 

Chandannagar is a beautiful historical town situated beside the river Ganga in Hooghly district , West Bengal.Chandannagar was established as a French colony in 1673. It became a permanent French settlement in 1688. French left Chandannagar permanantly in the year 1950.A beautiful  destination along with the riverside studded with lights surrounded by lush green trees.  Many buildings of historical importance surround the place. It is very popular visiting place in India . Artists would love to paint  along enjoying the soft breeze and watching the small boats sailing by. The place is so peaceful and green that every creative person will definitely get some inspirations from here. Chandannagar strand is a perfect place for plein-air painting.

Chandannagore Museum and Institute (Institut de Chandernagor) ,The Chandannagore Strand, Sacred Heart Church of Chandannagar,The Underground House  (Patal-Bari) ,Ancient temple -Nandadulal Temple,Residences of famous personalities,Nritya Gopal Smriti Mandir, KMDA Picnic and amusement park are the major attractions here.
