Hello Friends !
2010 has brought lot of excitement and enthusiasm with it.And in the very 1st month the Artist in me has come into action. Here are a few drawings and craft work that I did to welcome the new spirit of life...
1). PICTURE FRAME:
This is a photo frame. I made it using aluminium foil and transparent polythene giving it a crystalline effect....
TREES SILHOUTTE :This picture is made by using wax crayons and white chalk.I have tried to give the effect of moonlight over tress in the jungle...
I made this on a moving train while I was returning home from Mumbai....
3). The following picture is my favorite .It is close to my heart because the girl in the picture reminds me of one of my very close friends, Rachana. Actually she is a true artist and she is excellent in sketching and drawing.She mostly draws pictures of a beautiful young girl sitting on either a hill top or on a rock , waiting for something or rather someone.....The girl in her pictures has captivating eyes, little nose and lips just like rose petals....Inspired from those pictures I made this .
Perhaps after a few more attempts I'll also b able to make a beautiful face.. :)
4). COLLAGE : I have used newspapers and torn desired portions of it. I stuck these cuttings giving the shape of a colorful bird, Macaw.
5). COLLAGE Again: I wanted to make water and fishes. So, here is ' Life under the Sea'. This one took the maximum time to get completed.I have made the backdrop in various shades of blue. I have made a school of small colorful fishes , swimming towards the bottom.The sea bed has few bivalves, a snail, colorful stones, sea weeds and a Red Star fish.
6). COLLAGE IN THE AIR: I made another collage without the blue backdrop.But in this I have highlighted the the fish fins, eyes , and other details using sketch pens.
It looked quite incomplete without blue water.So I finally used wax crayon to color the backdrop blue.Further, to make it look real,I added air bubbles to the picture.
7). This sunset scene is made by using mainly wax crayons.
8). Valley of Tulips : ( Full crayon art ).
I never thought that wax crayons can give so much life when used. It's real fun experimenting with the different shades. My next drawing will be of tulips in Blue, Red ...n all possible shades.
9). A SPOOKY PICTURE: While I was making my art work, everybody else in the house got tempted to color too. And all of a sudden there was a race for coloring the maximum....I was pushed aside .My brother took over and started coloring the tree Red ...when Bhabhi said " the spooky tree must have spooky colors in it...so, let me do it Dirty Green .." As a result my entire picture was on mercy of my Bhaiya n Bhabhi ...Then I jumped from another side to have atleast the background in my way...And finally all of us together made this Special art work :) ... SCARY INDEED ...
11). PARADISE IN BLOOM :
12). A BRIGHT SUNNY DAY: This scenery I made while imagining the idyllic waterfalls of TEMER ( a small place near Jabalpur,M.P).
13). To break the monotony of this white cup, I used glass paints and made some random shapes on it.
14). This is a Spider web. They are fun to look at when hanged in a corner of the room.It is made up of PVA glue.
Caught in the web .. My Hero... :)
15). SQUASHED THINGYS: These characters look as if they have been crushed.... :). I made several of these in all colors. They can be used as bookmarks, decoration on the wall or window-pane, etc.
