Welcome to the blog "Journey with brush"

Welcome to the blog "Journey with brush".

I have started painting since my childhood but when I reached graduation level I left it due to various reasons. But suddenly last year (2009) I got the inner call to restart.

Some of my friends, colleagues & relatives appreciated my paintings & encouraged to continue with my painting. They often ask me to show them my latest paintings. So, I decided to create this blog to display my work to them who love, adore & appreciate painting. I would also expect genuine feedback as my journey with brush will continue as well as my learning process.

Thank you for visiting the blog "Journey with brush".

The colours of autumn

I have decided to start this year with something special & the result is “The colours of autumn”.

I did this painting for the person who has inspired & encouraged me various way to continue with my painting & also helped me to face/ handle some of the critical circumstances of my professional as well as personal life. He is a Psychiatrist & don’t confuse, he is my colleague with whom I share my personal life & with whom I have worked for last 3 years.

I have painted “The colours of autumn” for him keeping in mind his affinity towards the nature.

I hope you will also enjoy “The colours of autumn”.

Road ahead

“Road ahead”, I have completed this painting couple of days back with soft pastel on paper. The result of this painting is not great, as the color changed after spraying the fixative. But still I have selected this painting “Road ahead” for this post as a New Road, a New Horizon, a New Year is ahead of us.

Through this post I would like to take the privilege of thanking you who have taken out time from your busy schedule to visit my blog, to drop comments & to encourage me various way to keep painting. 

I would also like to take the opportunity of thanking you for your wonderful posts in your respective blogs which helped me/us to understand the way you see the world & its beauty. 

Wishing you

Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year!

The lonely tree

In this painting I just tried to capture the beauty of nature with limited components. I did this painting on paper with oil pastel. Every time I work with oil pastel, I experience some limitations of this medium (or may be it is my incapability of handling the medium). The same repeated in this painting also. But still the outcome of this painting has satisfied me.

Rainforests are characterized by the high rainfall. Rainforests are the habitats of most of the species of the world including plants, animals, birds, insects & microorganisms etc. Rainforests are called as the "jewel of the earth". So, somehow this jewel of the earth has fascinated me to capture them on paper.

I have used oil pastel & paper for this painting. I am not very much comfortable with oil pastel. So, your expert opinions, suggestions & feedbacks are most welcome.

The colours of heaven

I have completed this painting couple of days back. It’s a small painting. The size is approximately 10" x 8". I did this painting just for fun & I really enjoyed the process & of course the end result.
According to some of my friends, this painting reflects my heart.  So, I decided to let “The colours of heaven” reflect my heart in my blog, too.
