HUNTED - (Theme # 23, Picture # 13)

Paintings are an age old tradition in India where during the 11th and 12 century the concept of illustrated palm leaf manuscripts came into being. Manuscripts are very small in size hence the painting done on it had to be comparatively smaller. With this need the concept of miniature paintings came into existence.

Miniature paintings are delicate, small paintings done on paper, ivory panels, wooden tables, leather, marble, cloth and walls. A high degree of expertise is required and this art is carried out delicately with a very fine brush and is characteristic of intricate, colorful and rational impressions. The colors used are mainly derived from minerals, vegetables, precious stones, indigo, conch shells, gold and silver which are obtained through a laborious process.

This picture is done following the miniature painting style. I have created the background and copied the hunter and the boar from one of the miniature painting on the net.. You can view the original picture here

Broken (Theme #52, Picture # 12)

Hi everyone,

Changed the look of my blog.. created the header on photoshop and the background from blogger designs..hope it looks nice..

Got some dripping brushes from deviant art.. couldn't resist using them in my composition of a broken egg...It is so easy dripping paints in photoshop than try to do it for real in a canvas but the final effect on a canvas will always be far superior to the result I have got here...

Theme # 10 - Animals (#45)


This is a tribute to M.F. Hussein who is called the Picasso of India... A great artist, he loves to paint horses..

I tried sketching with the pencil and brush tool in photoshop.. Was not able to get sharp, accurate lines, but sometimes inaccuracy can be beautiful especially in art..what do you say?

Grunge background is from deviant art.. horses sketched from google image photos..
