PLANT SKETCHES

Lately I've been into simple pencil + gouache sketches of plants. I like the feeling of soft pencil on the paper and matte finish of gouache together. Here are a few of them.


GOUACHE

I've been playing with gouache lately. I like the flat matte finish it gives. And it's really fun to put details.







SEASON OF MUSIC WEEK 6

Find ways of representing silence. This is the page I did for the final week of Season of Music of Get Messy artjournal.

I love Depeche Mode older songs.



SEASON OF MUSIC WEEK 5

My favourite prompt from this week's Get Messy Artjournal Season of Music was about Synesthesia.

Synesthesia is a neurological phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory leads to automatic experiences in a second sensory. Some people have the ability of "seeing" music. I often put on some music and do a lot of non thinking intuitive painting. Just mixing colours and seeing where it goes brings joy to me.

Moving to the music or doing any body movements and then translating them to the canvas is a fun exercise. It helps me let the worries go away and fear that this page is not going to turn out great. It's simply paint and my time with it. And there's always another layer!

Most of the pages were inspired by Bon Iver's music. For me his music is a beautiful combination of autumn fresh air and nature images.
