Watercolor Paintings Candidly Capture the Expressive Faces of India

Artist Rajkumar Sthabathy uses watercolors to capture the essence of India. Within his expressive paintings, Sthabathy depicts candid scenes witnessed on the streets of his homeland. There are the rickshaw drivers who make their way through crowded streets, vendors who work to sell their wares, and pedestrians who offer the painter a candid smile that shines through his work. No matter who he's painting, Sthabathy always manages to impressively depict raw emotion as he aims to capture the reality of India.

“I feel immense love and respect when I see our ordinary humans for what they are… They travel my mental prism to, for no reason magically materialize, forcing me to design and register them picturesquely, bestowing eternal peace upon me!” writes the artist, adding that watercolor is his voice, his language, and his signature. When it comes to his creative process, Sthabathy further explains, “An astral nature who seems to sing the music of depiction sitting on a chair in front of me gracefully moves the brush in my hand and spreads the color of beauty on the canvas dawning shapes and structures making a blissful, lively, intervening white spaces along with marvelous shades of colors!”
