Default Re: India by Dariusz Klemens

Alex,
With all due respect, Claude is a highly revered "teacher" for many of us on TE, a Pro among Pros, and for very good reasons. There is in his work a refusal to PUSH colors beyond credibility, to remain true to the orginal cast of colors, a delicate sense of composition (partly inspired by his profound study of certain painters), and a rare sensitivity to his subjects.
I suspect that he finds Klemens' work a little "vulgar" in its treatment of color and differing form his own.
I personally like both in their different ways.
For you to describe Claude's stirling work as "dull, bland and uninspiring" is beyond harsh...it isn't even fair.
