Why am I selling some art ‘affordably’?

“I paint on anything and everything. A lot of effort goes into what I call ‘practice sessions’. Sometimes I may develop the initial sketch as a finished piece even though it started out as a practice session. Sometimes I leave it at the point where I have learnt or ‘practiced’ what I set out to […]

Nishi

Custom commissions of portraits are challenging to say the least. It’s terrifying before I actually start the work. Then I slowly get into the flow of it and it gets less terrifying. This latest painting of Nishi and her dad, Uttam was all kinds of terrifying. Sindhoor wanted the portrait done as a birthday gift […]

Rumor has it…

Rumor has it.. Truely the big little one has my heart.ย  She is absolutely adorable. I call her a mini horse with a puppy’s heart ๐Ÿ™‚ I recently had the pleasure of painting her. And I love how the portrait turned out and thankfully so did her parents, Rahul and Ritu. We became friends some […]

Sadhu(s) on a plate!

You all know me and re-cycling/ up- cycling! If there is still life left in it – you know I will figure out use for it ๐Ÿ™‚ A few years ago (in 2013) I had papered some old melamine plates with pages from my son’s old notebook and then I painted over them. There were […]

Trompe l’oeil

Trompe-l’ล“il (French for “deceive the eye”, is an art technique that uses realistic imagery to create the optical illusion that the depicted objects exist in three dimensions. I stumbled across artists who use this technique to perfection and after trying my hand at the ‘Chilli Sutra‘ series, I realized something in there could be done […]
