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.

Until next time…. x o x o.

I'm an Artist, You wouldn't believe I have a M.Tech in IT. I'm fascinated by Art, Fantasy, Magic, Myth; Yup , I'm a huge Harry Potter fan. I'm a paintbrush and a nail polish addict. I am Rebellious. I love traveling. I love architecture. I love scuba diving and sea food. I wanna backpack through Europe. I have a tattoo on my wrist with my husband's name on it and a Paintbrush in the same to represent ME. Oh yeah, I cry while watching an emotional scene in a movie, I cry after a visit to an orphanage BUT it doesn't mean I'm weak. I'm one of the strongest people I know. I'm a proud Army wife, I've lived in Jungles and had Elephants ruin my kitchen garden; I see chitals, Nilgais, Hornbills, Peacocks, and many more on a daily basis. I've had experiences No Civilian would ever have in their life. The only thing I hate is people telling me what to do and how to live my life, when I don't really need their opinion.
