SUMI E : Day 5,6 … definite progress!

Actually there was no day 5 . I was pretty busy yesterday to  do any practice but  Day 6 was fruitful. The drawings today are definitely showing progress , but still no where close to the  real thing.  Im already begining to feel the need for some books , proper Chinese Ink and Brushes and ofcourse some Rice paper.  What you can see below is using the school grade  water colors on photo copier paper.  I must move on to cartridge sheets atleast.  This weekend I’m planing to visit town to hunt for near authentic materials … Im getting closer you see! … 

PS…. and I made my signature look like chinese too :) …and Everybody who wants to get considered for receiving a FREE  masterpeice, consider joining this site  now (on the right …) !!!! :) …

Day 3/4 of SUMI E…

I seem to have definitely improved on my SUMI E talents on the Day 3 and 4 . Getting a bit close to the INK and WASH harmony of the SUMI E paintings :) … Aint I? Oh Well! Please! Its not bad for a beginner … Look at the difference between my earlier strokes with these … much lighter and smoother . I tried to ink wash some Gold Fishes too…

Glass Painting … Just a doodle

You know what… any bold doodle and a variety of glass colors on a plain white transparent bottle, looks like a masterpiece, really… I would say, this is some art, that every who awe’s over other peoples art forms, thinking ” I can never create anything as interesting as that one … ” TRY THIS … really!
No twaddle…The day before Smita and I tried some. She did the more interesting one… the one with Mehendi sort of design. I did try and incorporate my Chinese INK and WASH techniques here too :)

PS. Thanks to Shivani and Aneri to introduce us to this interesting passtime!

I like Chinese Painting, Try It!

Been thinking about trying hands on water color painting for a long while now, but sincerely thought that it could never be my forte.
An old A4 size cartridge sheet drawing book,  a few small paint brushes ,  A palate of cheap school water colors ( borrowed from my 7 year old Nephew) ,  a few tutorials on YouTube , a little patience, two sleepless nights  and little hardwork LATER …. here are the results . Not as good, but Im quite chuffed. There is scope for improvement … :)!

I quite liked and recommend Chinese painting because it seems easy to follow and results are quick ( as you can already see).
Next Task : Painting on Glass Bottles !!!!  … Tomorrow!surely!
