About me


 I am Alax Tharakan, based in Kerala, INDIA, I am focused solely on the watercolor painting medium. 

I've painted on and off all my life. I love watercolor. Most people express it's the most difficult painting medium to use - after all if you make a mistake, that's it. I also love the spontaneity of watercolor and the pace at which you can perform, often being able to complete a painting in under 1 hour. Also the freshness you can get with watercolor, the attempt to make one brush stroke work just right and it expresses precisely what I want.

I have painted more energetically since about 2005 and try and do about 3-4 paintings a week. As regards subjects to paint, I love doing landscapes and Life movements. Pretty much a scene anywhere in the world as long as there is some visual delight. I try to get out and about as much as I can to paint, but most of the time I'm indoors in my studio and painting from a photo. 

I sell my paintings into displays mainly in INDIA. have had infrequent sell my paintings abroad.
