Ponytail and Messy bun

I’m back to my blog after really long time! but this time with something different than my usual things.. Please check this out.

Lately I have realised that it’s not easy to attend UKG classes at the age of 30+!! So.. just to kill the boredom, started to scribble something while attending online classes with my daughter.
Here I just tried to show the day to day activities of an active kid in simple lines.. and have named it as “Ponytail and Messy bun”.. (Messy bun is myself since i don’t get time to comb my hair these days.. and the ponytail refers to my daughter)

Hope to express more experiences visually in her upcoming classes 😀..

Avian beauties

   This time for a change, I am here with some photographs, which I have taken in my recent visit to Sirsi, my native place. I consider myself extremely lucky to have been born there, which provided me ample opportunity to enjoy  the pure nature right from my childhood.

I always enjoyed watching birds and their behavior. Effortless and graceful flight of birds always fascinated me. This time, got a chance to capture these avian beauties in my camera, in fact I could capture more than 30 varieties of birds without much effort. Although I find bird photography, especially wild bird photography quite difficult, I am enjoying the challenges.

I should thank my cousin for his guidance in this exploration. He not only educated me in the basics of bird watching, but also taught how to locate and approach them safely without disturbing their life and damaging the habitat, which is really important for an amateur photographer like me..

So enough of writing now!! ;) here are the photographs...

A silent stream..

I tried to paint a stream in the misty morning light here!..Started the work randomly without prior planning of colours and compositions ..
I used the brush strokes only to get the softness and the freshness of the morning light, everything else painted with pallet knives.

Glad to share this work with you all because whenever I look at this painting, it makes my mind so calm without any meditation..

                                    Medium : Acrylic on Canvas
                                     Size: 20" X 30"

Thank you for visiting the blog, have a great day..
