Tried my hands on iPad Air using applepencil on procreate app 🌼 This is kind of my first attempt of painting flowers on iPad. And to my surprise I enjoyed digital painting.
All these days I was using my new iPad for composing scanned paintings. Or to sketch out some ideas. I was little hesitant to try flowers in procreate, in fact I was not sure how to do that. I did some Skillshare courses long back but then absolutely avoided to try them out.
Finally over the weekend I gave it a try and it turned out like this. 😀
We had a painting contest in the office “Story on Canvas”, theme was artwork should be inspired by any famous book/ movie/ character or Series. That being said how can i miss an opportunity to paint anything inspired by Studio Ghibli movies right? So tried my hands on this Dawn scene from ‘only yesterday’
This painting is a scene from a one of the very famous movie of Studio Ghibli.
“Only Yesterday”, directed by Isao Takahata. Movie follows a 27-year-old woman called Taeko across two different timelines, Taeko being a child and her younger-self.
Upon feeling intense wanderlust, she takes a long holiday to visit some distant family members in the countryside to help with their safflower harvest. This particular scene is a one view of safflower field.
During her trip, Taeko recalls various childhood memories of family dysfunction, puberty and first crushes. Her time in the countryside is a transformative experience that connects her to her younger self, leaving her to wonder if she has built a life her childhood self would be proud of.
Only Yesterday couldn’t be more appropriately named.
I have listed few of my paintings from 100 days of birds painting. All are the original pieces of handmade paintings.
These paintings would make a perfect gift for a bird lover on any occasion like House warming, Anniversaries, Birthdays. Also these cute birds will look good as Office Decor, Study Room or Kids room Decor.
Though I promised to be consistent on my posts here on WP I hardly get time these days.
Let me tell you my routine.
I used to go to gym early morning around 6AM but these days we are under second lockdown in Pune, Maharashtra. Gyms are closed in my city. So I do some exercises at home.
Due to this COVID situation we decided not to take domestic help, so I cook twice a day along with dishes🙄. I enjoy cooking though. Sometimes (over the weekend) I make seasonal dishes like yesterday I made Mango Sheera (it’s an Indian pudding made with semolina, ghee, sugar, cashews and raisins)
I do WFH and these days office work is taking toll on me. That’s the main reason I hardly get time to make art on week days. That being said I used most of my weekends to create or paint. These days we are staying home so I utilize my weekend to rest and relax. Also if you have read it on my Instagram story @artbysnehal that I started taking online weekend painting classes for kids. Here in India kids final exams are over and they have enough time to pursue hobbies. For now 6 kids are joining from different locations. May be I will make another post on that.
Yeah now enough of my routine, this lavender painting was done I guess a month ago and realized I never shared it. I used art philosophy colors. And this one is done directly with paints no drawing (you may noticed some flaws in jar 😜)
Though 2020 has taught us a lot. There are many reasons to cheers and let’s hope for better 2021 !

Well this time I have decided to giveaway my class “Watercolor Cardinal Illustration”for free. It’s a premium class which I converted into free for limited time. Students with a Free Access Link can watch this class for free without a Skillshare Premium Membership.
It will be valid until August 6, 2020. Also there will be only 5 links, meaning only 5 students can access the free class.
I know I know you must be wondering about the title, yes you read it correct. I have decided to end my 100 days of bird painting project 10 days early. That means the macaw I painted was the last one from this series.
I guess this is first time I have abruptly stopped the decided painting challenge, that being said my sabbatical is over and now full time work has started. It’s hard to dedicate time for art. So I had to discontinue the current challenge 10 days before.
On the other hand, the paintings which I photographed and edited last week are now ready for sell.
