Bliss of Krishna Janmashtami

I am back with my new water color art work which is dedicated to lord Krishna . As we know Krishna Janmashtami is falling on coming Sunday so lets celebrate the bliss of Krishna Ashtami.

The mind acts like an enemy for those who do not control it.
                                                                                       ~ Bhagavad Gita 

In 3228 BCE in Mathura, India, a child was born who was destined to reshape the spiritual and temporal destiny of mankind—Sri Krishna. In his 125 years of life, Sri Krishna made an indelible impression upon mankind’s collective consciousness—re-educating the world about devotion and dharma as well as the ultimate reality. His life was a model for people in days past, the modern world and surely for those in ages to come. 

The soul can never be cut to pieces by any weapon, nor burned by fire, nor moistened by water, nor withered by the wind .
                                                       Bhaagvad Gita – Lord Krishna

As a human being puts on new garments, giving up old ones, the soul similarly accepts new material bodies, giving up the old and useless ones
By : Bhaagvad Gita – Lord Krishna

Happy Krishna Janmashtami to everyone..!! Stay tuned……..!!

 

The Feminine Force In Indian Art

My today’s art work is inspired by Mother Goddess ‘Kali’.

my cosmic mothers

Kali comes from the Sanskrit root word Kaal which means time. Kali other is the goddess of time, energy, doomsday, and death, also known as the black goddess.

A devotee Poet says…..

“Is Kali my divine mother, of a black complexion

she appears black because she is viewed from distance

but intimately know she is no longer so

The sky appears blue at a distance, but at it close by

and you will find it has no color.

The water of the ocean looks blue at a distance

but when you go near and take it to your hand

you find that it is colorless”

Ramkrishna Paramhansa….(1836-86)

Crayon are not just for kids

Using even just one or two colors itself can force you to see your drawings in a new way.

Crayons were invented by Binney & Smith in 1902 and first offered for sale in 1903. Alice (Stead) Binney, a school teacher and wife of co-founder Edwin Binney, suggested the company manufacture an inexpensive alternative to imported crayons of that era.

They used hot beeswax combined with colored pigment to bind color into stone. Similar method used Ancient Greeks and Romans.

Crayon Drawing

Crayons are sticks of colored wax, charcoal, chalk or some other material used for drawing and coloring. If they are made of oiled chalk then they are called “oil pastels”. Those made of oiled chalk are called “oil pastel”, those made of pigment mixed with a dry binder are just “pastels” while those made of pigment mixed with wax are called grease pencils or china markers.

Pastels were used by Leonardo da Vinci in 1495. Artists used “conte crayons” – something between a pastel and a standard crayon – since the late 1790s. In 19th century other pigments appeared (not just charcoal) and Jane Austen mentioned crayons in her “Pride and Prejudice” in 1813.

Drawing Techniques

Colors can be blended by rubbing them with a paper stump or simply with a finger, and because they are not powdery like charcoal or chalks – being more similar to oil pastels – layers of color can be laid on top of each other to give a scum bling-style effect.

Remember the first time you picked up a crayon, right after you first learned your abc’s? Bring back the memories with this font! Enjoy!

I am sharing few of mine Crayon sketches if u also have an art work to show then feel free to share  in comment section.

In the above Sketch I have tried to define fine layers of Lord Shiva’s hair.and used just two crayons Black and Blue used red to highlight his facial features.

Abstract Watercolor Painting

love everything about watercolor that I love involves fun and freedom. It is such a pleasure to feel paint slide across my paper surface.Once you’ve learned the rules of watercolor painting, it can be fun to break them.


 Below i am sharing one of my water color abstract art work

IMG_20180730_155154207_HDR.jpg

For this abstract painting i have used flatten brush of  number 2 .

used non waterproof pen for outlines.For the background of the painting i have used green -blue colors.on wet page drop the colors and let it bleed .it will provide a natural looking texture to the page background.

When working abstractly, it is key to take inspiration from all your senses and push them into your painting.

All you need are a pencil, watercolor paints, a piece of watercolor paper, a paint brush, and an hour or so of your time, and you’ll be on the road to making your own colorful abstract art!

Tip: When you are done with your watercolor painting, it is a good idea to spray your finished masterpiece with a permanent fixative like Krylon Crystal Clear. This permanent protective gloss coating that will not yellow with age. Moisture resistant and smudge proof.
