Nilgiri is a mountain range that spreads across Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka. It is part of the larger chain of mountains, the Western Ghats. We stayed at Ooty, and drove to several places around. The three paintings that I present here are parts of the hills close to Ooty. I discovered this blue house in my walk, it was hidden under a foliage of trees; I had to climb up a hill, stand on a jutting rock to have a clear glimpse of the house. It was drizzling, my son held an umbrella for me as I sketched and painted the house. The other two paintings are also close to Ooty town, on the way to Doddabetta, the highest point of the Nilgiri mountain range.
