Last week I completed this work with oil pastel and watercolour. I was enthralled by the beauty of Ganges when I visited  Agarpara Giribala Temple Ghat complex last week. I instantly decided that I should paint this view on that very day. I am happy that I have  kept my word . The place is very nice and cool,perfect for open air painting and sketching . Adjacent Giribala temple complex is also very calm and quiet.

Sweet memories are really a virtual treasure to anyone. I have many sweet memories based on my travelling. Specially when I visit Jalpaiguri ,Siliguri,Dooars,Darjeeling I get nostalgic ,because I had spent my childhood days here with my parents. Recently when I visited Jalpaiguri I was enthralled by  the beauty of the nature here. I used to walk everyday morning beside the river Teesta during my short stay in Jalpaiguri.

An artful tour to Dhamakhali ( Sundarban area)

Dhamakhali Ferry Ghat

Landscape near Dhamakhali

Recently visited Dhamakhali to get some fresh creative inspiration from nature. It was a cool winter day. The day was partly cloudy. Our bus took 4 hours to reach Dhamakhali from Kolkata. I took a few Sandwiches and sweets in the lunch box to relish them in the actual spot. Cool breeze was flowing then . The place was  awesome. Dhamakhali is situated at the confluence. Two or three hotels are available for night staying. I returned Kolkata on that day.  I had made some speed sketches sitting beside the ferry ghat. I also captured various moments in my camera while roaming beside the riverside. I will share more images in future .
