Project 2: U.A.E – Culture and development.
This was again done for my sisters class. Her topic was social studies so i came up with this idea. This was around 54 inch chart on which i first sketched out the idea and then painted using water and acrylic paints.
The flower lotus has always been very fascinating to me. The fact that it grows in water is very cool. Unfortunately i have never actually seen a live lotus in person 😦 but since i love it i decided to paint it 😀
….and would you ever give up doing what brings joy? Never! isn’t it right? So just like that i decided to paint something simple and natural. I like to call this an autumn walk…. i like using bright colors but i think i am very much drawn to dark colors like black in particular, maybe because its such a versatile color to work with in terms of adding depth to a portrait.
Painting never fails to surprise me no matter how many times i do it. Each stroke of brush is special and each time i paint its magical. Its a great way to relax the inner chaos and give your mind a rest from everyday hustle & bustle.. So here i have painted a place i called home ie United Arab emirates,Dubai.
