I had made a sketch on the theme of churning the ocean from Srimad Baghavatham some days ago, but only now got the time to complete the painting. I wanted to get bold with colours, explore the depths of blues and greens . I have used water colour cakes, colour pencils and dry pastels. As the work progressed I got besotted with the peachy sky and the expession that the turtle chose to wear. Alas, there is no place here for the devas and asuras !
