Art this week..

I am really loving doing loose paints..
super enjoyed doing this

Captured the neighborhood house above, I admire the tree, its beautiful orange flowers, the old dumped car everyday, while back from work.  The work still needs a lot of improvement, will re paint only the tree and its flowers.
just like that, from my pocket sketch book

On my wall..

For months I was looking for a customized medal hanger, where I can hang as many medals and definitely the tagline should go for all of us.
I am happy to show off our earned blings.

This is my first original try(lots of mistakes) painted picture of N and daughter when she started her training for running her first 10k last year.  While sprinting she left N far behind. She is a good sprinter, enjoys it more then running.

and the first week completes today

More of hands on work from last week.  
Best one till now, I liked this.
Had made the boat too in this scene(cropped it!!), but the angle went too offline (bad drawing, I tell you)
I think I will go for  more of loose painting in the future.
Loved to play with colors in this one.
tried this, but the angle of my drawing again goes wrong
tried outlining in this one!
Of course they are not my original work, I have go-ogled the ideas.  Still getting the correct hang of the style of painting I would like to do.  Trying all as they come.  Coming week I am going to try some sketching too. But I am happy with my work and progression in just a week time.

My new love...

My first painting
For past don’t know how many years I fell in love with water color Art.  Looking at them led me to the state of deep relaxation, introspection, self-awareness and feel like a beautiful connection; I just cannot move my eyes away from them.  Soon I wanted to learn and believe the same, realizing the power of a paper, paintbrush and cup of water.  I wasted two years finding a teacher.  Nothing worked then one day thought of just giving it a self try.  Learnt few tips online and here I am with my FIRST EVER PAINTING, started doing watercolors in my thirties.  Yes, it’s true.  I never knew I had that inside me.  It’s been a week I am painting every day, it’s still a surprise to come into a whole room dedicated to the messes I make and to see my art table covered with paint boxes and brushes and know they’re mine.

I may be a self learner beginner  in water coloring but I dream that someday I walk into my art studio early in the morning, before the sun has come up…all quiet, birds singing in the outside the window,   and a blank piece of paper in front of me, to connect to the element of water, to the beautiful garden I see outside and to breathe awareness of what color, waiting for my brush and  felt drawn to start with after I dropped the water onto the paper,  and think about how this all came about.
