THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
Mountains are known for the natural rivers, streams and brooks that run through them, providing clean water to swim in and to admire. The scene that is depicted in the A Stream in Pineny Mountains 05 Painting shows such a scene perfectly. The main feature of this painting is a thick river that is running down a slight, rocky dip in its path. It creates a short yet fascinating waterfall, turning the greenish blue water above and below into a brief patch of white rushing water. Spindly tree branches overhang the water and provide little pockets of shade.
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.
