View From My Window

The view from my window, invited me to grab a brush and paint. So, I tried my hand on landscape painting, though portrait is my favorite. Also, the medium is acrylic, which is new for me because I am comfortable with oils or pencils. January means a lot of snow in Minnesota but this weekend, we experienced a hint of Summer, which was fabulous! The outcome was this work.

I just thought of sharing this with you. Hope you like it. Stay warm and happy!

Random sketches of the eye!

  When I was a little girl, I used to love sketching. I drew faces and figures all over my copies and books. I would often get frowns from my parents and teachers but it would never deter me.

My aunt is a lovely artist and I drew inspiration from her works. Even my sisters loved to draw figures and landscapes but I primarily focussed on the face, specifically the eye!

These days I hardly paint because colours demand a lot of time and effort. And also because I don’t want my kids to get supercreative and make artworks all over the house. But I do sketch a lot whenever inspiration strikes me.

Today, I felt like sketching the eye and I drew some random sketches in about fifteen minutes.

Here are the pictures…hope you will like them😀
