THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
The River Ilawka 5 Painting features a curvaceous river that winds throughout the painting and provides a beautiful focal point. Thick and prominent, the river begins along the bottom of the medium and winds upward through the center of the painting, taking a sharp curve and wrapping back around to the left side of the painting as it does so. On either side of the river, small groups of two or three trees have been placed, and off in the distance in the background, bright green hills roll on endlessly, brimming with beautiful shades of different greens.
GETTING TO KNOW A. ROY
A. Roy takes his inspiration from artists all across the board, bringing in little bits and pieces of what he loves about each one and incorporating them into each of his works. Born in Bengal, Krishnagar, Roy has moved a lot throughout his life and has taken his cues from the colors, the landscapes and the life that he has witnessed throughout his journeys. This becomes evident when you look at his natural scenes full of serene waters, sprawling mountaintops, pleasant forests and tranquil fields.
