Year of New Beginnings

I’ve been quiet this year. No blog posts. But I haven’t been idle. This is a year of new beginnings for me. I’ve been working on a collection titled ‘Aliferous’, which is probably what I’l be doing at-least until September. Meanwhile I’m also trying out new stuff(in painting of course). I always encouraged my readers and fellow artists to keep trying something new, so why not do it myself? Well, here’s what I’ve tried so far.

My first landscape- which means I’ve tried how to do trees, clouds, moon, grass. I have tried these things before but only once and given up when I’d failed. Well, here is the result.

Aside from painting new things I’ve also tried new products.

  • Faber-Castell Polychromos color pencils

These are absolutely amazing. They’re light-fast and great quality.

  • Caran D’Ache Luminance color pencil.

I only bought the white color because it is better than the Polychromos and very opaque.

Here’s the result of my first try with color pencils. I never knew color pencils could yield such great results.

Well, that’s not the end. I’ve also tried different acrylic mediums.

  • Masking Fluid by Daler-Rowney.
  • Pouring Medium by Liquitex.

I will be writing separate blog posts about these products in detail.

I’ve also been learning photo-manipulation using Photoshop from YouTube of course.

Meanwhile, you may watch my speed-painting videos on Youtube.
