Oodles Of Doodles

Painting is one of my favorite things to do in this world! Bless my parents for taking me to Mrs. Lakshmi Raghavan in an effort that I don’t throw away my summer holidays running around the house and getting into mischief. I got my first set of painting lessons while moving to class 6. Lakshmi aunty introduced me to the beautiful world of colors and making me believe that I could do it! Most of my best memories growing up are spending weekend and holiday afternoons and some school week learning different strokes. I am not an amazing artist but I love the works that I produce and enjoy the entire process of making them.

As much as I find painting fun and easy I find drawing and sketching a little hard. In fact I am still working on these areas to produce better work. Off late I have also started to explore the effects of color pencils, water colors, soft pastels etc., I will post my works here so that you can give me your thoughts and comments.

  1. The black and white pictures you have put up – are they done with pencil or charcoal? I bought some supplies for charcoal painting, I’m trying to find something interesting to do with it.

  2. Hey I loved your blog. You seem to be a kindred spirit with the kind of interests that I have too….I’d love to know how you manage to link all your entries on each page……
