Clouds over the Hills
About this artwork
This painting is part of artist Swarup Dandapat's series titled An Ode to Bandipur, inspired by his travel to Bandipur National Park in the state of Karnataka, India. Apart from its fame as one of the tiger reserves set up under the Project Tiger Conservation program, the forest is home to a wide variety of wildlife and boasts of a variety of biomes, shares Swarup. I spent several days in this national park, charmed by its untamed beauty. My impressionist style and transparent watercolor technique capture the soothing effect Bandipur has on its visitors.
