Deeply motivated by an intense urge from within to create artwork in water colours to reveal the beauty of nature in a realistic style, Dr. M.G. Makandar was very much obsessed by the hues of the simplicity of village life and its cultural vignettes in rural areas of our country. He was also overwhelmed by the omnipresent beauty of nature and its numerous hues and grandeur in various seasons in a year at different places and regions. His keen observations, command over the medium and techniques used and an eloquent visual language of expressions together resulted into the present series of artwork that is not only picturesque and expressive but also eloquent and visually pleasant. It depicts small mud huts and houses of farmers and other working class in rural environments that produce the landscapic visual effect. He has displayed simple village life and eternal beauty of nature at Hampi, Pattadakalla, Badami, Bijapur, Goa and many more places in his works. In addition, he has also highlighted the hills and snowclad mountains in Nepal and other spots. He also incorporated the eternal beauty and divine serenity of Mother Nature and their omnipresent grandeur in his works at strategic arenas so as to adorn them aesthetically with the desired visual effects and the expected tranquillity.
