THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
Like a hike through the mountains, the Wooded Path Painting puts the viewer in the standpoint of a traveler who is headed up a wooded path. Through the center of the painting, the path is depicted as a slender, perilous yet somehow serene road that runs up the side of a drop-off. This path is fashioned out of earthy tan colors that represent a beaten dirt road. Surrounding the path are instances of trees that lean here and there, all of which possess trunks of varying thicknesses for contrast.
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.
