I am an architect by profession and a self-taught artist.
I like to make paintings that play with light & shade. I try to portray love & tranquility in each of my work to bring visual comfort to everyone who sees it.
I have been inspired by my travels to many countries & I love to draw beautiful heritage buildings surrounded by nature.
Watercolor is my preferred medium but I also use acrylic paints for deeper shades.
I call this painting "Tranquility"
C. S Dutt is an Architect by profession and is a highly skilled & talented Artist as well. Watercolors have been his preferred medium. His love for designing buildings shows in his works and this has created his own niche in this field. An eye for details & a keen sense of observation have served him well, making his painting true to life. His paintings draw a parallel between the beauty of nature-God's creation, and the beauty of architecture- man's creation. C.S.Dutt's realistic landscapes and seascapes have been inspired by his travel to many countries in the world. His visit to France and Italy gave him exposure to works of European masters which reflect in his own works. He was especially mesmerized by the rustic countryside of France & the elegance of its towns & cities. Incorporating the intricate details of scenery into his works, the artist creates an unusual realism. The subjects in his paintings comprises of still life, landscape, water bodies etc surrounded by heritage buildings and monuments. His favorite theme remains the riverfront steps leading to the river Ganges where Hindus take a holy dip in India. This site is in one of the world's oldest cities-Varanasi or Benaras, India. Some of his paintings are based on the everyday life of the rural India. Colors in his paintings always seem to be charged with emotional tinges like joy, sorrow & calmness. Brisk brushwork with light usage of colors add a unique dimension to them. While some of his some paintings are very vibrant others are quite subtle depending on the artist's various moods.
