Finally ... I am into blogging !!

/hihi Welcome to my first blog. Wow!

At the outset I would like to give special recognition to Mr. Reno, my mentor at Frameboxx for continuously encouraging me to start this blog.

Well, let me start introducing myself. I am Asha Bhat as mentioned already under Profile, student at Frameboxx, studying specialization in character animation. After graduation, my interest has been constantly oscillating from the two-dimensional painting to three-dimensional animation with Maya. So I thought of taking formal trainings in both of them couple of years back. Unfortunately I had to discontinue my painting due to time constraints amidst my post graduation and animation course, but I am sure I will start it again.

With this blog, I hope I will get into the habit of writing regularly as it’s a golden opportunity for me to showcase my work. After all, the fact that pressing a button is enough to share my thoughts to the whole world is fascinating to me. Of course, this is a complete U turn for a person like me considering my passionate hatred for computer. Might be because of my husband spending more time in front of his laptop :(
 
Here is an oil painting work, in a 20 X 16 inches canvas. This is my second oil painting work, will post my first painting sometime later as I don't want to display that in my first blog itself!



Like any other beginner, I took a reference from some art magazine and it took around 6 days to complete this, excluding the time I left it to dry.

Here is a tip for you - while painting if you feel you are taking too much time, take it positively and believe that you are actually experiencing 'creative' process :P

You have arrived at the end of my first blog and I need your comments/suggestions to give it a life! So, check it out, follow and enjoy! Before concluding I should thank people who have provided amazing options like Ctrl+Z and Ctrl+Y which I used so often while writing this blog :)

Have a nice day! /bye

  8. First of all my sincere congrats for starting your blog.

    Life's indeed to be cherished in greater dimensions, and blogging is a great way of transporting onself to ameliorate his perpectives/outlook towards life. And there's no Ctrl+Z in life dear friend, and life's too short to apply Ctrl+Y again and again! It gives a real pleasure when ppl read and appreciate our thoughts, which is really needed to share our views in this nuclear society setup.

    And thanks for sharing with us this beautiful peice of art, which is filled with so much of purity of nature. Wish that your blog is nourished by many more such beautiful creations in the days to come, be it art or philosophy.

    All the best & cheers !!!!!
