Did he work in oils or acrylic?

Acrylic. Apparently, the climate here makes oils a nightmare.

Ah. I thought acrylics might dry out too quickly. Wonderful effect either way.

Sunil was painting here during June & July – the beginning of our monsoon season. His problem was getting the acrylic to dry! Despite the windows being open and the fan at full power, on several occasions he had leave the work for many hours, or hope it would dry overnight.
From December to March acrylics dry very quickly and he adds more water to the mix. Sunil told me that, due to the humidity, oils take so long to dry as to make working with them very difficult.
Before living here, I hadn’t considered how much art techniques must be adapted to local climates.

Thanks for the photos that show the progression of the painting and the sources of inspiration in it.
