Audrey Hepburn

Hello Friends,

The painting that I am going to share with you today is one of Audrey Hepburn, she was not just an amazing actress but also a Fashion Icon, and an inspiration to so many women all around the world. Even today, when I pull up an old classical like My Fair Lady, I am captivated by her beauty and grace. She was not just an inspiration to the women in her time but even now, she continues to be a role model for many women around the world. She was the definition of Fashion itself.

When I saw this picture, I din't even know who she was, but I knew I had seen her somewhere... I was so struck by this picture that I knew I just had to make it. It was later after I completed the painting I realized I had actually painted Audrey Hepburn. Earlier, I was very happy with this painting but when I realized who she actually was, I must say, I was really disappointed by my work. It feels like I did not do justice to her beauty. I wish I had known that I was painting her, maybe, I might have made it a little better, but you know what, no matter how many times I paint her, I don't think I will ever be able to grasp it all.

Why So SAD :( ???

Hello Friends,

What I am going to share with you today is not a painting but a sketch. I saw the image of this girl on the internet and I was so moved by her eyes, I just wanted to the capture the emotion they depicted. I remember looking at her eyes and my heart sank with sadness. I wondered what could have happened to this girl that made her so sad and so afraid.

I might have read a little too much into this but it gave me an inspiration and this was the result...

I hope you like it :)

The Dolphins

Hello Friends,

Sorry I couldn't post anything yesterday, I was a little caught up with work. But what I want to share with you today is also one of my first paintings, this is my first tile painting.

My friend came over to my place for a sleepover and we had just watched a movie about dolphins, we were so fascinated by them at that time, I wanted to go to the ocean, meet a dolphin, make friends with it and then swim with it :P
Stupid.... I Know, but we had many silly ideas back then, well obviously we couldn't swim with the actual dolphins as their were none in the Himalayas. So after the movie we were thinking what else to do now. Their was construction work going on in my house than so their were a lot of empty tiles available. My friend had recently learned tile painting, so we decided to do one. And so I made my first Tile Painting.
We were so happy about how pretty it seemed to us then that we even spilled one of the color bottles on the rug in my room, I still remember how mad my mother was when she walked into my room, but hey, it was fun....
Of course I was scolded and prohibited for a while but hey, it was still a pretty great memory :)
