Rural life in Jawhar

“Khula Aasmaan” art workshops in schools which are in rural and tribal areas give me an opportunity to see beautiful countryside and rural life at close quarters. Last year, we conducted painting workshops in schools in the tribal areas of Jawhar taluka in the district of Palghar, Maharashtra. Here are some of the pictures of the countryside. All the pictures are from December 2018. As one can see, the greens are all gone. The grass all around has beautiful hues of yellows, reds and orange. The spectrum of these earth colours is so wide at this time of the year. There is chill in the day despite the sun being up and one cannot but stop by repeatedly to see these stunning landscapes up close and be a part of them.

Earth colours all around

If the colours that I saw were to be converted into a palette, it would certainly be a large palette to accommodate all the hues of browns, reds and yellows.
