Birds of Paradise


These days I have decided to try to paint without pencil drawing. I mean skipping the drawing stage and start directly with paints. I was pretty happy with the results ๐Ÿ˜€

You can see the work in progress video clip on my Instagram Art a/c here.

I have bunch of used watercolor papers and I really don’t wanted to just throw them away. So I decided to use them with their backside. This one is painted with Sakura Koi colors on theย back of the old painting.

I think it’s a good way to save papers and continue your quick practice work or some rapid doodles. ย ๐Ÿ˜‰ ย ๐Ÿ˜€ ย What say?


Red Violets


Today we got a couple of inches snow in Denver. I stared this painting yesterday, I couldn’t finish it. So I continued today on this cold day. It was snowing outside and I was painting these pretty flowers ๐Ÿ˜€

Sicilian Chamomile


Few days back I came across beautiful whiteย flowers clicked by my fellow blogger friend Pete Hillman. Pete’s nature photography is so inspiring, those pretty flowers inspired me to paint ๐Ÿ˜€ Thank you so much Pete for such a beautiful click and allowing me to paint them.

About illustration – I skipped the pencil drawing stage and jumped to paint the flowers, followed by stems. Later added green foliage. Instead of painting the flowers white I used blue colors for petals.

Thank you for stopping by!

๐ŸŒธ ๐ŸŽ‰ Spring sight – 100/100 ๐ŸŽ‰ ๐ŸŒธ


Aww! It’s already #day100!ย Time flies so fast. I stared this #the100dayproject on January 1st, 2017. This beautiful peacock was my first painting of the series.
As many of you know that I’m more into flowers, birds or nature painting. So I decided to explore deep in these two subjects Flowers and Birds. I had plan for 50 flowers & 50 birds. So instead of painting all the 50 in a row,ย I decided to breakย big task into smaller pieces. Like 10 days flowers then next 10 days would be birds. So this way the challenge became interesting and engaging.
This little bird is inspired by a photo of Angela Souther Smithโ€Ž form ‘Photos for Artist’ community on Facebook. ย I added flowers to the branches. So though it would be more appropriate to end this flowers and birds series.
Though this was just a 100 day project, I’m feeling accomplished ๐Ÿ˜€ I did two-threeย #30days project earlier but this was my first 100 days project. I learnt so many things in these days. I came across various beautiful species of birds and flowers. I explored different style and techniques of painting.ย 
I really appreciate the encouraging feedback from my fellow blogger friends. This project connected me to many new friends on my blog and on my Instagram too. Thank you so much all my friends and followers for you support and motivation.
