Dogwood Flowers - Reserved for Lisa

I am so happy to share these pictures of the painting I made for Lisa. Well, Lisa also liked it and I am sure when she receives the painting she is going to like it even more.
I loved the whole process. Thanks for the opportunity Lisa. Looking forward to more such assignments from your side. :)

The above picture is Before the stitch and the green pigment in the centre of the flower.

Egg Shell Art

This is a creative experiment every 'egg'etarian must try.

You will require :
- Eggs
- Acrylic paints
- Bamboo skewer sticks
- Some cotton
- Glue

Getting the Egg Shells ready :
When you are ready to make an egg omelet or any egg dish...try to break it from bottom of the egg.  Tap the bottom of the egg with a knife and pour the contents for your dish and wash and dry the egg shells. ( to wash the inside of the egg shell - fill the inside with running tap water for few seconds)

Get ready to paint :
Get your acrylic paints and brush. Paint it as you wish :) and let it dry.

Now the last part:
Make a small cotton bulb at the top of the bamboo skewer and put some glue on it. Insert it inside the egg shell and let it stick.

....Your beautiful EGG SHELL ART is ready :)

Lisa's Painting in the making

I feel Lisa must be wondering how much of the painting is done and how it looks. Well, here are few pics of the paintings. I have been working on it to give some texture and visible layers on to it.

After the base paint I made a pattern by putting cello tape cutouts. Then painted over it. I successfully achieved what I wanted to. Then made a paper cutout (curvy slimy thing) and painted inside it.

The whole process was amazing. I enjoyed it and I hope Lisa enjoys it too.

I have planned to explore few more techniques over this painting. By this weekend 'Dogwood' - reserved for Lisa will be posted on Etsy :)

Have a great day :)

Dogwood Flowers for Lisa

My client, Lisa, has selected the DOGWOOD. And I am not surprised by the selection. Dogwood flowers will surely make a wonderful painting. I have started with the painting and enjoying it to the core.

As Lisa likes overlays and detailing I am thinking of incorporating few different techniques into this art. Her likings have encouraged me to indulge in some time taking techniques.. ;)  .. but thats what I want her to experience when the art hangs there on her wall.

Will post some pics of the art work in progress tomorrow. I am hoping to complete it by Wednesday evening.
