DEHRADUN, 16 Nov: ‘Composition is the souls of my paintings’ says Pradeep Wahule, an artist and officer of the 2009 batch of the Indian Fo rest Service. Pradeep’s efforts to portray the rich cultural heritage of the country through his art has been widely appreciated. After exploring Oil, watercolours, inks and charcoal he has now started using pastels extensively. ‘Its’s a pleasure to watch my pastels crumble adeptly into fine particles which then take their appropriate positions within the pores of the paper’s surface. There is a thrill associated with small discoveries in the techniques which just come up and this is what I really enjoy the most.’ adds Pradeep. He has effectively captured the Spirit of India in his paintings exhibited at the Valley of Words 2019, an international art and Literature festival. The 3 day event will conclude on 17th November at Hotel Madhuban.
