Sexy Vidya

This is the new one i have started painting. Vidya balan's beautiful photograph is the inspiration.
Hair was done with burnt umber, black, burnt seinna.

Also done with the skin part here... except for hand. Painting the feet took some time, and now it has come out well.
I used burnt sienna, Alizarin crimson and white to create different shades of flesh colors. Feet are having very high difference between the shades to create a proper shape. Tummy area was easy though. Most of my time went into the feet and face.

This is now the second level done :)
Blouse and hand also finished.

Blouse was easy. Used veridian hue and black to create the right color. Added lot of black for the cloth lines. Bindi is with alizarin crimson.

Hands was a bit tough. have put the dark shade by adding lots of burnt umber.

Ahhh... finally.... Third level done
Sari complete.
Used titanium white to first paint the sari. Then created waves using grey (mix of white and very little black). Then painted the embroidery using 3 colors. First base dots with a mix of 'Gold, Alizarin crimson and burnt sienna'. Then added few dots of veridian hue on border of each embroidery peice. Last put lots of dots of gold on each peince and wallaaaa... all done. Border embroidery also done in the same way.

Remaining are background and arm under the hair.
I think i will have to repaint the hair.

 Here i painted the background. White and grey.
Had to paint over the hair, as i didnt realise that background color under the hair should have been done before.
Finished with Hair as well !!!! At Last !!

This is an original abstract painting.
Divided the canvas into two beautiful colors. One side is a mix of Titanium white with Viridian Hue, the other being mix of Titanium white and Cobalt Blue.
Main aspects:
1) Choosing the right colors that create a soothing look.
2) Blending it right, Takes good time.
3) Painting of the tree (Here i painted after the background was dry)

Planning to make similar one with two other colors to make a set of  2 beautiful and soothing abstract paintings.

Beautiful Hands

 Made sketch from a friend's photograph.
I just loved the way she had put her hands so delicately.
I wish i had made it bigger in size. I would have then gifted it to her.

Made this sketch using graphite pencils. Used knedable eraser to give highlights !!

Sunset on the rocks

This one is absolute original painting. Beautiful sunset and a view of bridge... found it amazing.
Also the rocks and water .....
This painting has it all !!!! Perfect landscape, seascape, sunset, beach mix.

I started with painting the sky and sun. The clouds being dark gave a nice contrast. Then started with rocks. Painting rocks can be both easy and difficult. If you think too much.... u r gone !!! Start with your basic burnt seinna and then add shades of Raw umber + white to give it shape and to seperate rocks from each other. Also use the sun color on the side of the rocks (thats facing sun).
When all was complete dry, then i painted the bridge. Used again burnt seinna and raw umber..... ofcouse used a scale to get the straight lines.

Waves in the water can be made with thick layers of titanium white paint.
