Suave Zebra Portrait

Yesterday's work..another addition to "purple Stripes'' series.In my opinion he is by far the most handsome of them all! I manged to paint him on Sunday as hubby was out of town and I suddenly felt like I had so much time on my hands :) In fact ,nowadays  if I don't get a painting done, I start feeling cranky by the evening!

Blue Bag

A4  Watercolor on CP paper
I am pretty excited about this one...a figurative work I did after a long time! In fact I have been pondering over my collection of reference pictures for a long time and really,really wanting to paint them...but just couldn't decide how to make them exciting so I kept putting it off.
With this painting, I might have found something- because I loved painting this and please tell me that you like it too!!!
BTW its a self portrait- me and my turquoise bag- though this was an old picture, I still have this bag!

Little Birdie with Attitude

I have painted two birds today and loved every moment of  it!Well,a lot of work in a day, especially when hubby was at home on sick leave and I also had to take my son to the dentist !\
And now after I prepare dinner I have to work some more- a computer assignment that I have taken up...not really looking forward to it- but it needs to done! Lets hope I can paint some more birdies tomorrow...
This painting is also based on Ian Clarke's photo.

The Feast_ Bird Painting

Waxwings are sprightly berry-devouring winter visitors to England and Ireland. Waxwing is a silky, shiny collection of brown, gray, and lemon-yellow, accented with a subdued crest, rakish black mask. This one looks quite pleased with its breakfast menu! Thanks a lot to Ian Clarke, a very talented photographer of Sufflok,UK for letting me use his picture.You may see his work here.

Stripey Zebra off to a Journey

                                                        Stripey Zebra Finds a new Home


This Zebra was a favorite of mine; which sold last night on a DWP auction.Today as I took a last look before packing it to ship, I experienced a strange moment of sadness we all get attached to our work at some point? Well I am happy that it has found a new loving home.Just wanted to share the good news with you all...
Also wanted to apologize for not visiting many of you,though I really want to!...Too much going coupled with a few exhibitions coming up...hope to catch up soon!

The Hermit _ Sold

Soft Pastels on Pastelmat
I am happy to share this piece of news with you all.This Hermit from India is going to a UK household today.
Frankly speaking, I never thought it would...It is a very peculiar subject ;and not many people would buy portraits that are not their own/family.
But yesterday the CEO of my husband's firm asked to buy it when he saw it at 'FineArtAmerica' website.
So I think I sold my first portrait today which is not a commission!

Hare is another one...portrait in watercolor

Its Spring time here, after a long spell of cold and rainy weather- I can't help feeling sugary sweet. Last five days have been full of sunshine and I manged to send three artworks to new me a reason to be happy! I hope all of you are having something to be happy about.

This is a Brown Hare ( a Native British Hare I think) painting him was fun;and I will be painting more of these beautiful and agile creatures...brace up for some serious cuteness!

Hare they Come...

Latest small paintings of  Hare.Springs is here so they can't be far away. These Brown Hare are mostly found in Europe; and a common sight in British countryside.They are Brown with white belly, but I have made use of some artistic freedom and added pink and blue to the brown- even made bottom two white!
After the long winter months there can be few sights more uplifting to the human spirit than the spring-time antics of these delightful creatures. 
They are up for grabs at ETSY as well as DWP for anyone who might be interested.
