Acrylic on Canvas: Part 4

Theme: Christmas

Christmas lights on canvas: Stretched canvas on wood of size 12”*12”

This is the first time I was using stretched canvas and I wanted something beautiful to paint on it. So here comes the third layer of painting over this sheet. The textures are from previous painting which luckily is providing the rocky look of wall on which the decorative lights has been hung. The bokeh effect on the left side has been created with gazing medium. Some lights seems to be far n fainter while some nearer and brighter. Christmas decorations are hung with pearl strings with snowflakes and lights in it. The blue and mauve color used in the background creates a mysterious night aura.

Golden Snowflakes: Canvas of size 12”*12”

Well silver snowflakes are too mainstream. So here comes my golden snowflakes. On a white canvas, I used fabric glue which gets transparent after drying. The one on left-bottom is the regular snowflakes (inspired from frozen 🙂 ) The half snowflakes is the really decorative. The use of a bit of mauve color has made this snowflakes an antique. The other snowflakes is getting distorted and an imperfect one. Well what is perfect in this imperfect world. 😉 Out of the three the antique one is my favourite.

Pinky spirals: Canvas of size 6”*8”
Glue is becoming an obsession for me. Here I have used Pink and white fabric colors to make these spirals. I didn’t plan on this. It just came on canvas. Some whites, some pinks, some pinkish whites and some whitish pink. And I just love the pink sprinkles originating from top-right corner.

And this is the full view of my painting table. Cheers!!

Acrylic on Canvas: Part 3


I painted this on two canvases, one 8*12 and 12*16 inches, and it looks insightful both together as well as singlets. I put every color I had into this piece. It has all the elements of an abstract paintning: colors, geometry, space and it gives you an open opportunity of its interpretation. Before this I used to be afraid to use black acrylic due to its dominant nature. During the course of this painting I have used an aweful lot of black and I just love it how it came out on canvas. ❤img_20160918_125726

Acrylic on Canvas: Part 2

The Calm Budhha

After a vibrant color palette, this time I chose the coolest color in this planet i.e. green and blue. A tint of gold is also used in this painting to incorporate the royalty. I was working on human face, still I managed to get those beautiful eyes almost right. For the first time I worked with glazing medium. It really makes working with layers of colors fun.img_20160621_125559

The Crystal Ganesha

For the last few months, I am completely in awe with the lord Ganesha’s idol. His round tummy, the baby elephant head and a distinctive appearance, everything is unique about him. And I am more fascinated by the infinite ways in which you can play artistically with that image. On Diwali I made a kandeel with lord Ganesha’s idol on its two of its faces. Yesterday I made a decorative piece for my office desk with crystal Ganesha’s on it.crystal ganesha

For that you will need:

Few shiny crystals (I took them from my aquarium 😀 )crystal

Red acylic color, Brush, Scissors, Fevicolred acrylic1

A cardboard of your choice ( I chose a 4”x4”)

Time to make: less than 15 minutes

How to make it: Cut cardboard to the desired size according to crystal’s size. Then paint it with red acrylic. Keep the paint a little thick, move the brush like uniform waves to give the board a textured look and leave it for 4 hours to dry. Thicker the paint, the better will be the texture and the more time it will take to dry. Stick the crystals on the colored cardboard in the fashion shown in the above picture with fevicol or crafty glue.  The beautiful crystal Ganesha is ready. You can put it in a golden metallic frame and give your wall an exquisite hanging.

Wo sunsan raastey
Jinpe chalte chalte kabhi mile the hum
Jinpe chalte chalte mehsoos kiya tha humne
Chhoti chhoti khushiyan jo thi unn raaston se judi!
Aaj lag rha hai kafi peeche reh gyi hain wo
Kuch sunahri kuch syah yaadon k sath!
Kabhi na chaha tha kisi ne ye
Par lagta h yhi thi khuda ki marji!
Humein tha khud pe bharosha
Aur aap-pe aur apne khuda pe
Aur sabse jyada hamari dosti pe!
Par lagta h sare sapnon bas ek hi anjaam liye aate hain
Wo toot-te hain, toot k bikhar jate hain!
Bas reh jate hain hum, hmari yaadein
Aur ek bujhi si umeed unn sapnon k jud jaane ka!
Jindagi rukti nai kisi bhi sapne k liye
Kabhi chalti h ye sapne dekhne k liye
Aur kabhi toote sapnon k jud jaane ki ummed liye!!

Ye kagaj ke panne

Nasamajh hain wo jo kehte hain
Ki kagaj ke pannon ko to hawa bhi uda le jati hai
Sayad wo kabhi uspe likhe shabdon ko dekh na sake
Unki takat pehchan na paye…
Ye panne na jane kitni khushion, kitne gamon
Aur kitni parchaiyon ko chhupae baithe haine
khubsoorat pal jo inn pannon mein simat kr gye
jate jate inn pennon ko hi khubsoorat bana gye
kitni duayen kitni chahtein dafan h inme
kabhi hairan kr jati h mujhe
hum insaanon se adhik jindadili to ye panne sahej jate hain.
