Life's new dimension...!

Hey Folks! Breaking the long lasted silence, here I'm with a new experience of mine. My latest passion!

Guess what? Painting! :)

I've always wanted to do a portrait of Rahul Dravid, ardent fan, but didn't know how to paint. I mean I didn't get a chance to learn it from the scratch [i'm not born genius ;) ]. Finally, the day has come and I've painted quite a few pictures in different styles. To name a few : Tanjore painting, Nirmal painting, Madhubani and Oil painting. It's been 3 months since I started learning painting [just a beginner :) ].

I've got a few tips for you. Some may seem a bit silly but I think if you don't take care of them, finally it'll make you feel silly.
  • If you are using a board which has a hanging bolt already fixed to it, make sure you paint on the right direction. See to that you don't paint upside down.
  • Never go for a complicated picture if you are trying to learn. Go for simple ones and paint them big so that you can do every bit of it clearly.
Tips will continue as and when I experience it...

I've posted a few of my works. Have a look! :)
