Sathya’s work ‘Live Temple’ was painted at the temple in the afternoon. This picture gives an impression of the dynamic moments taking place in a temple. The trees besides the temple attract bluer colours while the tall Neem tree holds strong warm colours. Boys swim in the calm and subtle temple pond. As they jump inside, it creates sudden waves which are unrestrained. Colours shine on the waves and it carries all over the pond.
