I have some of the nicest followers I could ever hope to have.To see their messages asking why I haven't posted anything lately is the only motivation I need to stop procrastinating until my next trip and write something.
Being a jobless and very recent graduate,it takes some freelancing to earn guilt-free finances to spend on personal pleasures like travel.As I wait in anticipation of my next trip,I thought I'd post a little something I've been doing with my free time.
We had just gotten out of Pepper House, the location of George's (Nivin Pauly) Cafè Agapè in 'Premam' (A Malayalam movie that you MUST watch..) when we decided to have lunch at the Seagull Restaurant next door. Something about this scooter made it a great frame that I HAD to paint.
I love movies that bring out the subtleties of a place.Fort Kochi has a romanticity that was captured in 'Premam' in a way that when you've seen the movie and the location where the scenes were shot,you KNOW that the movie was shot by people who knew and loved this place.
There are many cities I've been to in the past that were beautiful,but few whose ambience make it possible to go there again and again and still be moved by its nuances,be pleasantly surprised by the colours that shoot up in your face out of nowhere,and feel sort of LOVED by the place itself.Fort Kochi is definitely one of them.
This watercolour painting doesn't give enough credit to the beauty of the frame but I think it comes close.
