In Feb 2020, 2 of my paintings - Roadside Cafe 1 & Pavement Life - have been selected as FAV15 (Top 15%) in FASO's BOLDBRUSH Painting Competition ... With shows being cancelled & many galleries shutting doors, I think this is a good time for artists to introspect, hone our skills & to participate in as many online contests/exhibitions as possible .. Time to #BeatTheVirus ????????????????

Feeling good to be selected by NWS for their 100th year Annual Members Show - Thanks to juror Carlson Hatton. However, due to the recent COVID19 situation they are not accepting paintings originating from a few countries - mine being one. But I'm happy to note that they'll post image of the painting as having been selected for the exhibition. Thanks to NWS.

Grand Place, Brussels by Sagnik Biswas
Watercolor 16" x 20"
 
Brussel's aptly named Grand Place or Grote Markt is the heart of the old town & is an excellent place for people-watching. Though I made some sketches on site to study the eclectic architecture (an opulent blend of baroque, gothic and Louis XIV style), my real objective was to capture the play of light and shade in its decorative façade & the cobblestoned alleys. Happy to mention that I have been selected as AMBASSADOR OF THIS WEEK by American watercolor Weekly, where this & 2 other paintings have been published. Here's the link https://americanwatercolor.net/author/kkane/

This was in 2015. In a narrow alley in Granada I found this perfect contrast of light and shadow that I wanted to paint. The name of the painting has nothing to do with reality, it's just to suggest a probable narrative and spike interest. Wishing good luck to artist Doreen Montis.

Hello @Vic Mastis, thank you. I thought the extended vertical format would further highlight the slenderness of the column.

I do not know which church is this, I got a glimpse of it while driving down from Vienna to Cesky Krumlov in 2017. Its reddish roof jutting out against a clear blue sky streaked with contrails made for an excellent subject. Dedicated to Mountain Sage Gallery.

In 2016, in the lively Altstadt (Old Town) area of Munich bustling with tourist crowd in gay abandon, I found these three sisters in their habit walking down a corner the somber figures presented a contrast in every way possible. Dedicated to artist Shelley Armstrong.

Leaving Town is leaving the Diocletian Palace cum town in Split, Croatia. Built in the 4th century by the Roman emperor, it's still home to thousands, with a cathedral, numerous shops, bars, cafes and hotels housed in some 200 odd buildings within its sprawling remains. Year was 2017. Dedicated to Artist Ron Gallant...

A 'Strategy' For Painting
Posted on 2/14/2019 12:53:01 AM


Biography
 
“May it please the Lord, Light of All Things, To show me the way, So that I may paint Light worthily” … (Leonardo da Vinci)
 
 
He has always been painting … be it on the walls of his room in childhood, or the perspectives during his course of Architecture or even the concept sketches he makes for Product Design  … but none have been Art for Art’s sake. It was only after a visit to the Uffizi Gallery in 2012, that Sagnik was truly fascinated by the possibilities of Art & began a more sustained effort in Watercolor Painting.
 
If travel has been his inspiration, then the internet was the great enabler … he is almost entirely self-taught from the numerous gems scattered in the WWW – Joseph Zbukvic, Viktoria Pricshedko, Myoe Win Aung, Vijay Achrekar & Andy Evansen are only a few of those whose works he has been following closely.
 
John Singer Sargent, Vincent Van Gogh  & Johannes Vermeer remain his major inspirations.
 
His style can be best described as representational – sometimes bordering on impressionism & sometimes borrowing from realistic abstraction. Sagnik’s paintings are like visual travelogues telling stories of people, architecture & places he has been to & been inspired by, to paint. 
 
To him, a painting is as much a personal memoir as it is a visual communique to his audience. 
 
Currently, Sagnik lives in Mumbai with his wife & son.
