New Paintwork  Sample
This is a digital mock-up of a larger painting that I am working on at the moment. The digital colouring helps me visualize the painting on paper before I start it.
What you see is progress at the end of Day1. If you are interested I can share progress at intervals :)

Firethroat
That, actually, is the name of this bird! :)
Sometimes a bird is a great rarity for the area, in this case for the whole of India. A birder then 'twitches' the bird for the record. Although this is not my first sighting of this bird, it is possibly the 5th or 6th record for India. This is what you call a vagrant migrant.

This eagle is a part of a much larger canvas which is work in progress. It will not get finer detailing I think as would have been necessary if it was a portrait. Any case, will update you when things get along a bit with the rest of the canvas. Thanks for looking.

Coping with  Summer
Climate change is best not discussed because so many want to remain in denial. But what is undeniable is the mercury.
We, at Kolkata city, had our hottest March in the last 5 years with temperatures touching 39C. The next highest was 36C in 2012!
The Jungle Myna featured here has figured out a way to beat the heat. I wish it was that simple for us.
