Ratindra Das, NWS - Portside Afternoon

Ratindra Das, NWS

Virginia Bacon Memorial Cash Award

While wondering around the backside of the fishing port in an afternoon I caught a glimpse of the quiet corner with play of lights and shadows and I sketched it out immediately. Some local colors triggered me and gave a clue to the overall pattern of the motif. It is not a narrative. The structures inspired me to paint the subject beyond the obvious.
