Still Life Challenge

with 7 comments

I did a painting challenge after a very long time. I used to do the now-defunct challenge of Karin Jurick. But  I lacked the motivation to do the subsequent painting challenges that came later. This time, I decided to do the painting challenge in rookie painter. I loved how the watercolor paintings of still life looked like and I wanted to give a try. So, here it is.

Waterlily Series No.9

with 4 comments

It has been a long pause since my last post.I have been so carried away with my kid’s school and homework that this painting took me about a month to complete. And there is another incomplete painting before this too. I need to go back and complete that painting. Having said that the waterlily painting is the last painting for the year 2011.

I hope to do more figure drawings and then eventually figure painting for this year. I need to practice more on figure drawings. Surprisingly, I got a gift kit of a book on figure drawing and a manikin.I have been planning to buy one for a long time. I hope to include posts on my figure drawing practice with you this year. With continuous practice, I hope to progress from skeletal manikin figures to fully-clothed real life figures. As I write more about it, it sounds more and more like a new year resolution. Well then, so be it. NOT FOR SALE
