Lady on Glass

I  wanted to combine my fashion designing skills along with my passion for paintings and the result was this picture I got.
This is on the similar ground as the Reverse Mirror Painting done by me a few days back. The items in the picture that you see first, are to be done first and everything else follows. A few things to be remembered are, your work should be very neat, like starting with the outlining itself, all lines should be with the same intensity and while filling colours, they should not run out of the shape required.

The colour that you use in the end as filler should be thick enough that the whole painting brightens up.
Frame the end painting in the most innovative way to make it spectacular.

Ganesha Sketch

For any kind of pencil sketching, the initial requirement are pencils of variouus kinds. The initial drawing is done with an HB pencil and the details are put using HB pencils of higher intensity.

I would like to share this secret with you, the areas of darkness are done using the highest intensity shade as you can see under Ganesha's right arm and around the ears.

Just keep on using your imagination and doing any amount of work on the sketch you want to draw.

The result is really going to be spectacular. All the best and keep going.

Ganesha in Acrylics

I was working in oils earlier but now thought of working in Acrylics. This medium works in the same way as posters. But you have to be fast enough to finish as they dry very fast.

The painting is done on a canvas cloth. First of all a very light sketch was made by me. After that, the first thing to be painted was the background which was just done free hand.

After this, the Ganesha was painted. The white part was kept really clean and the work on it was done in the end.

To give a little drama, the ornaments were done with the gold filled in a cone. In the same way, a few other things like the leaves on the top and the shawl worn by the deity were again done using the same acrylic paint done in a cone.

A few things to remember - Pay attention to the eyes and the initial drawing of the figure. This gives a magical result to your final picture which is framed in the end to give a positive result.
