Painting Spring

We welcomed Spring, talked about flowers and all the goody-goody Spring-related stuff one can think of but like they say- 'All good things come to an end', so will this weather. (As a matter of fact, with the Tornado, overcast and rain, the weather is just going from bad to worse).

Looking at it from a different angle, the wait for good things gets so long at times that people go crazy. This is exactly what happened to me!!

While the wait for flowers to bloom seemed endless, I started off 'creating my own'. I painted Spring!! While it was still cold outside, I had some sunshine indoors ;) Here's what I've got to share.

The seeds (of this painting) were sown longggg, long ago and I am glad that it is finally in full bloom and adorns the bedroom wall. The idea sprung from a brochure I picked up at Art Van Furniture.

I obviously did not want a black-grey-white version for my house. I decided to use reds-blues-yellows-greens and the palette knife for texture. After several days of painting and drying, repainting and drying again, I finally finished it off. Problem- how to put it up on the wall? Various combinations were tried. Mom-Dad and Sanket were dragged in for suggestions.

Some of the zillion combinations

Though, I had started off with the intention of putting it up as a square, I finally settled on the linear arrangement. Looks decent and fits the bedroom wall well !!

Decided... and done!!


Linear Stages

Mission accomplished!!


P.S.- More to come :)

  4. Although the final outcome is adorable and too nice to appreciable but somewhere I feel the last picture(extreme right) should get rotated by 90 degree left.

  5. Thanks Sunil. 90 degree clock-wise or anti-clockwise? I'll give it a try, for sure!
