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 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.

It's very good! It has a welcoming openness to it, without being boring. The tree is perfect, and the sky is so fresh! I can look at it and feel like I'm taking a deep breath of clean country air!

You managed to capture the beauty perfectly in this piece.Green and yellow fields ,blue sky,with the lonely tree makes a lovely composition.

Once again you show complete control of the media. This is very nice. I like the gradation in the sky and the use of green is well balanced. Nice composition.

In my opinion, also this work is absolutely good! The sky is simply fantastic and the composition very attractive. Well done D.D.!
