I completed my first painting for 2022, on March 11th after a hiatus of 3 months (from December to February). I realized how much I had missed holding a brush in my hand. But, sometimes, no matter how much you enjoy doing something, you have to wait because life gets in the way. There is a time for everything.
While I enjoyed sketching the picture and applying the paint, it took some time to get accustomed to sitting for hours in front of the easel. However, having done the painting, I feel a sense of relief – I had been worried that I might have lost the touch. Maybe, it’s because I haven’t learnt art professionally, or because it came to me as a gift from the Heavens during the lockdown, that I fear losing it.
The medium I used for this painting is acrylic paint- which is thankfully far more forgiving than watercolours. The painting has been done on an 18″ X by 24″ canvas and is inspired by an oil painting by Bryan Taylor.
I call the painting, ‘Glow’. It is a reminder to burn brightly to eliminate the darkness around you and to make an impact so others can reflect your glow.
Let me know what you think about the painting. All feedback- critical or otherwise is more than welcome.
