THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
Ready to embark on a seafaring adventure, the boat in the Red Boat at the Seashore Painting faces toward the ocean, pointed out at it in a determined and prepared manner. This red boat is composed of short, careful, layered brushstrokes. The brushstrokes that compose the tan sand are also heavily layered to provide a realistic texture to the coarse material depicted. Off in the distance of the background of this painting sits the expansive ocean disappearing in the distance, composed of white foam, a light blue shore and a rich, deep navy blue in the background.
GETTING TO KNOW A. ROY
A. Roy takes his inspiration from artists all across the board, bringing in little bits and pieces of what he loves about each one and incorporating them into each of his works. Born in Bengal, Krishnagar, Roy has moved a lot throughout his life and has taken his cues from the colors, the landscapes and the life that he has witnessed throughout his journeys. This becomes evident when you look at his natural scenes full of serene waters, sprawling mountaintops, pleasant forests and tranquil fields.
