CCAA’s Demo Artist, Sept. 23: Sadashiv Phadnis

CCAA welcomes Sadashiv Phadnis, an accomplished artist specializing in watercolor, painting landscape and portraits. His demo will focus on watercolor in landscapes. Born and brought up in India, he moved to California in 2001 to pursue his career as a software engineer. He developed a keen interest in art after he secured his first job. After his university graduation, he could devote his time and resources to pursue formal training in art. He attended some of the prestigious art schools in India and trained under well known artists such as MTV Acharya and RM Hadpad.

Sadashiv was drawn to the watercolor and has been painting in that medium for more than two decades. He is self-taught for most part, picking up techniques and approaches of various accomplished watercolor artists through his study. Photography and theatre are his two other passions.

The Central Coast Art Association meets 6:30-8 pm at the El Estero Park, with a meet & greet time until 6:45 when announcements & the demonstration by the guest artist begins. Meeting/demonstration ends approximately at 8 pm.   777 Pearl St (next to Dennis the Menace Park), Monterey, the fourth Monday of each month (please check for holiday schedules). Attendance is free and open to the public.
