Snow-capped peaks, a partly frozen lake, and a lone shikara.... that makes for a quintessential picture of the beautiful state of Kashmir.
Inspired by a newspaper photograph clicked earlier this month during the intense cold wave sweeping north India, the colours and reflections in this picture made for a compelling subject.
It also reminded me of the time I had visited the valley as a kid, and inspired another painting. But I'll share that one on a future post.
Hope everyone has a good week ahead!
