Beautiful Ganga

This is an artistically enhanced image of the sacred Ganga or Ganges River, as seen from the traditional mela grounds in Allahabad (formerly: Prayag), Uttar Pradesh, India.


The photograph from which this image was born was taken by artist Eppi Sukhu in February of 2010. After development, it was scanned by her, and then enhanced using digital techniques and programs, including brush features within Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo XI.

The richness and vibrancy of India truly cannot be captured through a simple photograph or other art form, regardless of artistic skill. Nonetheless, the great vibrancy and melody of colour that you see in this piece, including its suggestion of marriage between watercolour brush stroke and crisp acrylic colour, effectively represent the artist's experience of the rich spirituality, astounding beauty, multiplicity and vibrancy of colour, great depth, and cultural vibrancy that is India, and the Ganges River. As such, she offers a unique, expressionistic-style glimpse of the true beauty that is India to others, making India, and in particular this impression of India, more within the reach of all.
