Back in Action!!

Hello everyone!!! I hope people remember me :(.. Not your fault if you don't, as I've been away for like ages it seems..Believe it or not, I was almost completely away from any form of art all this while.

Sometimes my work kept me away, at times there was a lack of inspiration and at times ahem ahem I acted lazy!! Anyway, I am happy to be back and posting here on my blog again..

A few months back I bought myself a set of pencil colors. Did a little experiments here and there. The first two are my random midnight experiments with the pencil colors a few days back, and the other one is a quick charcoal sketch.

Needless to say, I felt extremely rusty after a long break..I just hope I manage a little more of art for myself this year. Last year was an unproductive one as far as my artistic skills are concerned.. :)

Hello friends! 
The year 2012, has not been a very productive year for me, as far as art is concerned as,I had to concentrate more on some other priorities. Nevertheless, I enjoyed each piece of my work that I came up with this year.With limited time that I could donate to art, I tried making maximum use of it.

I am happy to be doing more of figurative work this year and enjoyed the entire process. Starting form a blank canvas to a finished piece of art is so overwhelming. You tend to lose track and interest at times and then a few right strokes and you find your enthusiasm back. Finally, looking at your complete work gives an artist a sense of satisfaction which is hard to explain.

I do have a lot of plans for the coming year and hope to execute them appropriately so that the final picture is beautiful and satisfactory.

This painting of Mother Mary and baby Jesus was done on the occasion Christmas celebration in our office. We had a Christmas card making competition and this was my entry for the same. Found the reference picture somewhere on internet and loved how it depicted the feeling of content on Mother's face.

So here's wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a very prosperous New Year 2013!!!

Sunny Sea Side

Hello everyone! Three months since my last post and I myself find it hard to believe.But, it's such a relief to be painting again.Definitely, I did feel rusty and at a point almost gave up. But I am glad, I showed a little patience and completed this piece.
This was a new brand of watercolor paper I used and liked the way it behaved. I tried using a limited color palette here and satisfied with how it finally turned out, as I never expected I could even finish it after the way I struggled initially.:)

Hi everyone! I am glad to be posting again this weekend.One painting a month is what I manage these days.I really regret this but this is the best I can do,I guess.I have to admit that I do get little lazy at times, or should I say too lazy (as suggested by delayed posts on my blog).Sometimes,you do have other priorities and at times you don't feel like painting.The start up process is the most difficult task for me in a painting.Deciding what to paint,which medium to use,what support to use, usually takes away my half time and then eventually, I end up doing nothing.:) But once I start working on a painting,it all goes with the flow and I lose track of time.

Lately,I have been working a lot with pastels.They are easy to work with and fun too.For this recent work of mine,I used a brown tinted paper.It was just an experiment and I kind of got the desired result.So,when your trials are successful,you have all reasons to be happy for.:)

Happy weekend and a Very Happy Friendships Day to all my dear friends!!

In Sync

My work kept me busy all this while and I never found enough time to paint. So, had nothing to update here on my blog.I did catch up with posts form my artist friends as and when time permitted.After lot of struggle and a little time management, I did manage some time for art last weekend but then procrastinated  in posting it.
This is an oil pastel work which luckily came out smooth even though I was out of practice.I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed working on it. :)

Effortless Grace

  "In life as in dance: Grace glides on blistered feet"-Alice Abrams

                                  (Acrylic on canvas 12x11 inches)

Don't remember whether I have ever shared it on my blog that besides my passion for colors and brushes,I am also passionate about dance and music. I have been performing on stage since my childhood and I still continue doing it,as and when I get an opportunity.I am not a trained dancer but this in no way affects my passion towards this art form.Never bothered about being good at it or bad at it,I just dance and dance like no one is watching.:-)

Colors of Music

Hello everyone! It was quite a busy month for me with my Mom visiting me, me visiting my in laws,with all that travelling, obviously art took a back seat. But it was refreshing meeting family members and some good time spent with them. With all positive energy, thought of starting a new painting. This is done from a reference photo posted by Lee A.Brown on his  site A Day Not Wasted for October challenge. I loved the photo and had in mind to paint it some day.So, here it is with some changes from the original.Those fingers did give me some tough time.Initially, they looked more like tentacles.:-)
