My painting stuff-20x 20cm-Oil on Board


The other day, I was dying to paint, but was wondering about the subject. After much looking around about the house and outside it, I zeroed in on my painting cups.The black one with the brushes is the kerosene cup and the white one contains a mixture of turpentine and lincid oil. These cups were given to me by a friend of mine, for my painting purpose.I have a collection of throw away cups donated by friends!!The tube of Lemon Yellow paint has been squeezed out of shape, as in oil painting, that's one of the colours that I use most for mixing and highlighting.

Since it is a very small painting, the snap is of very poor quality ...that too after struggling to capture it for almost an hour..I am liking this painting a lot, as it has my favourite stuff, is bright and lends an air of painting to my living room!!

I misspelt linseed . Couldn't edit it somehow. The yellow cup looks a bit crooked because of the bad photography. Just an explanation: ).

Deadly still. I like the positioning, the proportions... but my preference is brighter colors though... keenly waiting the new media art works.

Say a Rs. 10000 prize is announced as the first prize for a painting competition this New Year... do you think it'll generate enough interest? Will it help popularize your works too...? With a higher amount?

@ Arvind, Believe me this painting is very bright...Its just bad photography that is the culprit.I am using wc pencils mostly for figure studies.I haven't uoloaded those.

Don't exactly understand your second post . My painting gives me happiness and that's why I paint. Do not care much about the money part as of now.It takes care of my work life balance and more.Let's see where it takes me.

Sure... but no harm if your passion inspires a few more young artists too.
