My sketchbook - 2018






Hi !!!!


These are the drawings that I have made in the past few weeks.

This is a freehand mandala on A3 size cartridge sheet. I have used marker pens, water colour pencils for the mandala & have painted flowers using water colours.







I found this beautiful landscape on youtube channel & wanted to give it a try. .. This is how it has come out. If I compare it with the original it has quite many flaws , but still I am happy with the end result.






Do have a look & let me know your views on the above.

See you next time with another creative arty project :)

Have a lovely weekend !!!:)

Hello 2018 !!!





A VERY HAPPY, HEALTHY & PEACEFUL 

NEW YEAR  TO ALL MY READERS !!!!




With this positive thought I would like to share my first blog post in 2018

I completed this pink coloured doily sized 19" in dia. The pattern is from Pinterest and I am very happy with the outcome. 







While making this I was thinking that my stash is filled with various shades of pink colour only. Need to get more colours.:) Can anyone suggest some good online shops to buy crochet threads /yarn ????? Currently I am purchasing from Pradhan Embroidery, but this new year I want to explore a bit :)


I also finished my madhubani drawing. I have incorporated warli motifs in this. I have used A-3 cartridge sheet, marker pens, coloured pencil & gel pens.






I have also posted this on my fb page. Plz do visit and follow my page.


Do drop in with your feedback on the above.

See you next time with my new creation..... hopefully ganesha mural which has been on my wish list for sometime now.



Bye & Take Care !!!!:)

Phad Painting - My new found love




Hi!!


In my endeavour to try something new I have been experimenting with traditional Rajasthani Painting - Phad painting.


Phad Painting is a religious style scroll painting practised in Rajasthan. This kind of painting is done on a long piece of cloth or canvas known as phad. The narratives of the folk deities of Rajasthan especially Pabuji & Devnarayan are depicted on these phad. Scale of the figures depend on the social status of the character in the story. Also in this kind of painting the characters face each other. 

The cloth / phad is starched with rice water or flour and then it is rubbed with moonstone to impart stiffness to the same. After the rough sketch is drawn the artist fill it with colour moving from light colour to darker shade. Orange is used for body parts, for ornaments and general design on the clothing yellow colour is used, green for vegetation, brown for monuments, blue for water & red for clothing. Finally it is outlined with black colour that brings out the beauty & intricacies of the characters in the painting.

I have made these paintings on 10" x 12" sized canvas using acrylic colours First one is of Lord Ganesha & the second one is of Radha-Krishna. All these drawings are net inspired & am happy with the way it has come together.








I have tried to stay true to this traditional art as much as possible & I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them. In case you have any suggestion on the same do let me know.

You can also follow me on Instagram for further updates.

Planning to explore Gond painting this week. Hopefully will be back soon with my new creation. 

Till then by & take care !!!:)

Stocking /Nylon flowers




Hi !!!!


Happy Friday to all of you :)


Today I am sharing with you nylon or stocking flower bouquet with you.






My student Sanvi has made this for her father as a "Welcome Gift". It was a sheer joy making this as I was doing this after a long long time & it is always inspiring to teach kids as they are so enthusiastic and eager to learn something new. 


I also did some bottle painting. This wine bottle has been lying with me for ages and I want to add some colour to it. So  I gave a base colour with glass colours and did dot painting with acrylics. This is how it looks now :) I am very happy with the outcome & I hope my hubby also feels the same .....






Do let me know what do you think of my projects :)

Till next time have a great weekend !!!:)

Glass Mural




Hi !!!


Happy Sunday to you all !!!!

Today I am going to share my glass mural which I completed few days back. 






This is a 2mm glass sized 12" x 12". I have used air dry clay and used acrylic colours  to paint the same. I got the design from Pinterest and have improvised a little bit. Next time I am going to try this on a bigger size :-)


Yesterday was Bhai Dooj and I was missing my brother very much. Its been nearly  two years since he left for his heavenly aboard but the pain doesn't seem to lessen. So to uplift my mood I made this colourful doodle...






I have used acrylic brush pens to colour the same.

That's all I have to share with you..... Thanks for stopping by:)

See you next time with some more crafty projets :-)
