Thirst Watercolor Pen and Ink sketch  and collage 2015  5.5x7" by Meera Rao

India has made great strides in supplying water to most of her citizens but the population growth, weather patterns and climate change/global warming issues continue to challenge her efforts.  And the thirst among the people also extends to educating the children.  These two issues consume the average Indian.  

When I saw the water pot, with its exaggerated shadows by a wall with  peeling posters on 'coaching' on various subjects, I knew I had to capture the scene.  I enjoyed combining pen and ink with watercolor along with collage of torn ads from the daily newspaper.

Dear Meera, Thank you. The post tells the important issue, which directly impacts on "life" in India. But the watercolour painting is very lovely and charming. So colourful, sweet and eye pleasant. I like the idea of collage. Keep up your work. I look forward to your exhibition news in the future. Best wishes, Sadami
