Well I painted these flowers a week back but couldn’t post it here. I also recorded the entire painting. I made a times lapse video which you can see it on my Instagram @artbysnehal.

I am planning to post it on my YouTube channel as well. Will keep you posted.

A movie scene

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.

Hello From This Side of World 🙋🏻‍♀️

Yeah Hello There!

I know I have been away from my blog. It’s just the (pandamic) routine, working from home and all. That being said the second lock down has just started today in Maharashtra India.

Anyways I resumed my paining, I guess last week or so and started posting it on Instagram. I could not post here on WP so thought to say HI to all my WP friends and share the paintings here as well.

After such a long break I knew that I need a good amount of practice to get back on track. So tried my hands on couple of Irises. Below are the pictures and also I have posted a time lapse video on Instagram you can see it on @artbysnehal

Stay safe and healthy that is what all I can say. Thank you for stopping by.

How to paint Cactus 🌵

watercolor cactus

Nowadays I’m feeling like painting in loose and wet on wet style. If you ask me – I would say I’m absolutelyenjoying it.
In this painting I wanted to focus only a particular part of cactus. So I tried to keep particular part in highlight and rest of the parts blended with background. This way it helps to differentiate foreground and background. Recently I have started recording a complete time-lapse videos of painting.
As I mentioned in earlier post, I’m not using any fancy tools or equipments to record the videos. But you can see the process easily. Here is a separate page on my blog, where you can get directed to particular video. I would love to hear your comments or suggestions on the same.

Brush pen roses

Today I went to public library. I took brush pen and WN color palette 🎨 with me. Got bored of reading so painted these roses quickly.

Have a great day ahead. You can follow me on Instagram @artbysnehal for daily paintings.
