Trees 4 by Sujata Khanolkar 10.5 X 14.5 In Ink on Paper 2019
Sitting under the shade of tree is one of the most relaxing things to do and the work is reminiscent of that comfort. It is full of light, evergreen and beautiful, almost giving the evidence of wind and sunlight streaming through the painting.
