The “Colours of India” from an artist perspective is an attempt at connecting pixel by pixel digitally showcasing the diversity of India.
Sarthak Palwankar presents his artworks which he made recently keeping ‘My India’ as a theme where he paints some unique places across India including Albert Hall Museum, The Golden Temple, Varanasi Ghat, the Sihagad fort, and the Dal lake.
“This is a tribute to the place I come from. I wish to share these artworks with a greater audience so more people can appreciate the beauty and vividness of this land,” he shares.
The Albert Hall Museum-Jaipur
I was fascinated by the incredible detail and the facade as it is an example of Indo-Saracenic architecture. It just defines the word Royal to me. Everything is grand about this museum keeping that in mind I wanted to emphasize depicting external and internal beauty as well so I choose a cool background colour and added warmth by the lighted interiors and the elements such as birds and horse carriage add to its beauty.
The Golden Temple-Amritsar
The Golden Temple is spiritually the most significant shrine in Sikhism covered in gold foil and surrounded by a man-made pool, It is believed that Lord Buddha used to meditate at this sacred site. The facade is shining in the gleaming ray of light. Just in the backdrop are the stratus clouds. The painting has a meaning stating that in your darkest days don’t lose hope because every dark cloud has a silver lining and God will shower you with his blessings.
Varanasi Ghat -Banaras
Located on the shores of the holiest River Ganges, this place is most lively during early mornings and at night. There are 88 ghats, the most popular ones being the Assi Ghat, Chet Singh Ghat, Darbhanga Ghat, Dashashwamedh Ghat, Manmandir Ghat, and Manikarnika Ghat to name a few. In the early morning fog, the view across the ghats creates a mesmerizing aura which is an ideal setting for artists, photographers, and the travellers. The stillness of the water, the boats, the reflection, and the pandits performing rituals and praying to the Sun God are easy to capture.
Located approx 40 km from Pune Maharashtra. It is at a strategic location at a height surrounded by steep valleys and arid terrain. There are two gates to the fort. The battle of Sinhagad was the most famous battle fought by Tanaji Malusare. It is said that the steep cliffs of the fort were scaled by the Marathas using tamed monitor lizards against the Mughals during which Tanaji lost his life but the fort was captured.
Dal lake -Srinagar, Jammu & Kashmir
The Dal Lake locally is also known as the jewel of Srinagar as a major attraction for tourists, travel enthusiasts, and nature lovers.
