It has been a while since I last worked on a painting. The journey of exploring what I want to do continues. Realism, impressionism, post-impressionism, Cubism, I am trying to play with all of these, learn from the great and modern masters to further my understanding of techniques. And while these efforts are sometimes futile and frustrating, in some other cases turn out to be a journey like none other. Right now I have an interest to explore a lot more of cubism and at the same time I am also curious to explore the style al la Van Gogh, painting in a frenzy of colors and energy like no other artist portrays through his work. However focusing on this moment here is the new painting I have been working on. "LADY and CHAIR". I have generally never been a patient painter. The longest I have dragged a painting is for 2 days at the most. So to have worked on this painting over 2 weeks is somewhat of a success for me on the patience front. As you may have already guessed I am going for cubism here and spent a good amount of time learning the graduation of colors, the blending of tones and achieving the effect I wanted. Hope you enjoy it and feel free to share your thoughts and comments.
