Aqua prints

I was always a patron of dark earthy colors of maroons and browns (natural Taurean instincts?! ) yet surprised myself with some new found love for the aquamarine colors of blues, teals and turqs. Its weird how my shop cart ends up with all this blue stuff out of nowhere….Maybe it is because my roomie’s favorite colors are blue or maybe it’s the sea finally calling me ๐Ÿ™‚ Either ways, I am a happy mermaid for now !

Mahalaya # festive cheer

When I went commercial with Aure, I was working on 3 projects for different clients simultaneously. While working , I used to feel curious as to which of the 3 works will finish up and become my first sold art. Watercolor splash Durga maa for Preeti made it to the title. And being attached to Goddess kaligamba,ย  it was a positive vibe- a sign I’m thankful for.

Today being Mahalaya, join me in digging up the archives and getting devotional ๐Ÿ™‚

Power of fresh flowers

I was raised by a man who’s favorite subject at school was Botany.Smelling the terrace potted jasmine,sunflower and the little bunches of exotics from trips to the crowded flower markets take its place in my fondest of memories. Even if I have the luxury of indulging in fresh cuts often,I don’t seem to get enough of these simple soft pastels … on crossroads between a lilac and bubblegum the shade has been inspiring me to take pictures and watercolor in my sketchbook..The power they possess over you and the sensations they create can only be understood by someone in love with the fl aura and fauna kingdom.I just wish they were immortal ๐Ÿ™‚

Distress is good.

Before you judge me as a sadist from the headline, I will get to it straight. In a graphic artist world, creating a fade or aging any art is called a distress. It is just a click away in the design software to apply distress on any object and make it appear faded to glory.

Few weeks back,I was trying to make some samples ofย  coloring sheets for Aure : the kinds you can take home and paint yourself, while color sampling a sudden urge made me try distressing manuallyย  by hand. I took some pebbles, sponge and fork and tried to scrap of the base ink in a harmonious pattern. The results impressed me.Lord Natraja looked totally mystique!
