Art Gallery

One of my most favorite hobbies is drawing and painting using various media. I love oil paints, watercolor, pencil, oil pastels, and anything that I can get in my hands. It seems that whatever media I choose to utilize, I can always produce something beautiful. I do not follow any particular style, though I do have a few of my favourite styles and techniques. Generally, I love experimenting with different media, and the outcome totally depends on my mood.

IMG_9326 Welcome to my Art Gallery!

I draw and paint whatever I find fascinating at any one moment, and it can be as diverse as landscape on one day and a portrait on another. As to the level of professionalism in painting and drawing, I am definitely an amateur stuck in my grade 6 level as that was the time when I attended an art studio back in my childhood. Ever since then, it has been a series of trial and errors.Presently, I am quite obsessed with watercolors and have been doing absolutely everything possible to be able to dedicate more time to painting.

My easel is now permanently placed hear our breakfast table as a reminder for me that whenever I have free time I can use it to create art. Our breakfast area also seems to be my favorite place to paint: we have lots of natural light there, and the area can be conveniently transformed into a temporary art studio by turning one chair towards the easel and placing all materials and brushes on the table nearby.With more practice, my watercolor art is becoming more and more complex in terms of subject matter as well as quality (check out latest works below and judge for yourself).

Watercolor Art

I find watercolor to be easy and hard at the same time. It’s an easy medium to work with, but is quite hard to master. Faces are the hardest for me when done in color (especially the noses – these guys always come out a bit wrong).

Oil Paintings

I love oil painting for its smoothness. The paint flows on canvas, and the art produced with it looks amazing! Lately I started experimenting with a new technique where oil colors can be used on paper. I use watercolor paper for its texture. When oil colors are applied onto this paper with a dry brush, the results can look quite great.

Acrylic Paintings

Acrylic works great for abstract work. I am new to abstract and find it quite difficult to loosen up my mind so to produce random shapes without any particular order. Also, there are so many techniques to learn that I almost feel like I need to take a class!

Oil Pastels Drawings

I discovered oil pastels at the beginning of 2015. Pastels are a pleasure to work with, though they can be messy. They cover the paper like Plasticine would, but in a much thinner layer, and there is usually a lot of residue that’s left unstuck to the paper surface which, if not removed, can mix in with other colors and produce mess. Mixing colors is also quite hard because the mixing happens directly on the painting. A tricky medium for sure, but does produce great art.
