Sound Reflections 3 watercolor by Meera Rao
Procession of people full of exuberance, in colorful costumes, playing music with shiny instruments stopped me on my tracks. It was a beautiful sunny day and the first thing I noticed were all those reflections in the instruments. I was fascinated how the colors and reflections vibrated on the polished metals. The need to capture the moment was immediate :)
