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".

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.

I have not been in touch with pastel colour for a significant amount of time. So, this time I decided to do some work with pastel and the result is “landscape”, a simple landscape.  I am somehow happy with the outcome. But still I expect your valuable comments, feedbacks & suggestions.

Old architectural structure

An old architectural structure standing tall near the main street of a city.

The beauty of old architectural structure has always fascinated me to capture them on paper or on canvas.

Wet lands

The location I tried to depict in this painting “Wet lands” is Kerala, a state of India. Kerala is also popularly known as “God’s own country” since the tourism dept. of Kerala govt. has adopted the brand “God’s Own Country” to promote the tourism of the state.

With the Arabian Sea in the west & well networked forty four rivers, Kerala enjoys unique geographical features. The exotic beaches, emerald back waters, hill stations, wildlife, waterfalls, plantations, flora & fauna makes Kerala as one of the most sought after tourism destinations in Asia.

Early morning

This time I decided to do something different with limited colours.
In this painting I just tried to capture an Early Morning. The sky is filled with cloud; the ray of the sun is visible only in the distant sky. I believe, somehow, partially I achieved what I set out to achieve & I am happy with the result. Still Comments, feedbacks & suggestions are most welcome.

Remote village (NE India)

In this painting I just tried to capture a remote village of North East India (NE India).

NE India has wide alpine geographical diversity and corresponding climatic conditions. NE India endowed with thick evergreen forests with numerous streams, rivers and gorges and hundreds and thousands of species of flora and fauna. The population in this region is comparatively less than the other parts of India & still most of the places are away from modern amenities.

I hope the brief description will help you to understand the location & its atmosphere better I tried to capture. I doubt I justified with the atmosphere & its freshness. I decided to leave it up to you to gauge.

Feedback, comments & suggestions are welcome.

Street with old buildings

These buildings are the mirror of by gone days of India. These buildings have been maintained to keep the glory of India intact. Both the buildings of this painting are old but still standing tall to enhance the beauty of the street as well as the city.

This painting reflects my humble effort to capture such a beautiful street with old buildings.

Railway platform

Indian railway has the largest rail network in Asia & second largest in the world under one management system. Indian railway helps transporting 20 million passengers daily. It is also one of the world's largest commercial or utility employers with more than 1.6 million employees. The platform of Kharagpur, West Bengal, India is the longest platform in the world. Length: 1,072 m (3,517 ft).

All those fascinating facts of Indian railway have compelled me to capture a scene of Indian railway platform. In this painting I just tried to capture a small town railway platform. It’s up to you to judge how far I have justified with this painting.

Comments, suggestions & feedbacks are welcome.

Sunny afternoon

In this painting I just tried to capture a moment of sunny afternoon. (A moment, 1-2 hours prior to sun set).
The sun is throwing its bright golden colour to the sky & earth. So, everywhere you look there is shining golden layer, creating a mesmerising environment.

The title of this painting says the atmosphere exactly I wanted to capture. But it’s your turn to judge how far I achieved it.

Forest land

Even though I am sharing this painting with you, but I miserably failed to reflect the way I decided to reflect it prior to the start of this painting.

A scene of the main street of Brigham city. Gateway to the world's greatest wild bird refuge.

Aqua life

Beneath the sea there is some hidden beauty. I just tried to capture the same in this painting.
I used different techniques to reflect how I feel about the aqua life.

Vase with wild flower

Last couple of nights back I tried a quick painting using the combination of flat & pointed brush. Here is the result.

Song of the forest

Sometime at night when I get the urge to do painting I do this sort of paintings.

The street

After quick drawing I spent about one hour to decide how I should colour.

Ternopil, a city of Ukraine. I love this sort of buildings of European country.

Wooden House of Arunachal (NE India)

I am not satisfied with this painting but some of my friends loved it.

County Road

Trying to capture a moment of afternoon.

City Scape

Even though I have completed this painting in one sitting my neighbour has disturbed in between so while the work was on progress I was not sure about the outcome.

The Ghat of Varanasi

Usually I don't use flat brush. But most of the work of this painting I did using flat brush.


I tried a different trick in this painting especially in the background & satisfied with the outcome.
I may use the same trick in future when need arises depending upon the painting.

Yellow Rose

I painted the back ground more carefully then the rose.

The Rose

I have painted this piece in 3 sittings. Before completing this painting I was not sure about the outcome. But the end result was not bad.
