Ladakh landscape the first view of pangong lake

Acrylic on canvas board 10x12"
Hello everyone here is my next painting of the Ladakh landscape series.  Every time I decide to do a painting of Ladakh I cannot resist going through all the photographs that I have taken in Ladakh.Its such good memories that there is always an enthusiasm for painting  which comes into play. It was the birthday of dear Indira who came with us for the trip.So this  one goes to her. This painting is done in acrylic colors on canvas board.
Indira you may be remember that first sight of Pangong Tso lake . Our travel coordinator Deepa called out to us to lookout for that first sight and now I knew why as soon as I saw it ,its so special.The jewel like blue is  the first glimpse of the lake through the mountains. Panong lake is in Ladakh,India and extending 60% in to China.Its at a height of 14270ft (4350mtrs).Its 134 km long.The lake has beautiful blue color which changes according to light .The view of the lake is most panoramic since its surrounded by mountain ranges.

Mountains inspired by Ladakh Landscape

The mighty mountains and landscape of Ladakh  is here in my new painting  in Acrylic.Shades of red on the mountains  speaks out for  the energy and magnificence of the region.The streams and the rivers though beautiful are overpowered by these mountains.There is no reference photos . This is just what came to mind when I think of Ladakh. Enjoy and let me know your valuable comments.
