Mandala Painting!



 Mandala is an ancient art which has been used throughout various cultures as a method of self-expression. . In fact, "mandala" is a Sanskrit word that means "circle".It is a complex abstract design that is usually circular in form generally have one identifiable center point, from which emanates an array of symbols, shapes and forms. A circle also denotes balance, perfection nd eternity as the distance from its center to all points on it remains the same, from wherever it is measured.

Draw the circles starting from centre. You can use pencil also for drawing the circles. Once the circles are drawn, you can start filling them with any design you like. This art can be learnt by anyone who has little interest in drawing. Mandala is an excellent form of meditative art in present time as well.
 
The time duration also depends upon the design you choose. The more intricate designs might take longer time. But, I did enjoy the process of painting it! . 


The best thing about designing your own mandals is that you have the freedom to choose whatever shapes and colors that you feel express your sense of self and your view of reality. Mandalas are great tools for meditation and increasing self-awareness. Here Iam showcasing Few mandalas I tried !
Materials needed:
paper, a pencil, a ruler, compass and an eraser,colored pencils, watercolors, crayons, or any other type of art material for coloring.I used sketch pen and finepoint finelinerpens.

Kettle Painting !



I’m not one of those ‘expressive’ artist. I am not an art student nor gone to art classes. I think my creativity levels heighten when I'm stressed or depressed. ... Instead I try to do other things besides paint/draw that can still be I always have such pretty images in my head that I would love to put down on paper. A self taught artist, who doesn't restrict herself to one single medium and paints on just about anything .She has transformed mundane things like tea kettles, buckets, plates and even a e chair into pieces of art.




Colourful and Quirky Kettles look very stunning and catch ones attention almost immediately . This is my first attempt in Kettle Painting. I love Music. so this what draws me into describing my love towards Music. Through painting musical instruments I wanted to communicate a thought, a feeling, a metaphor — without worrying about the rules of painting in a manner of speaking. I hope that like good music  you like My painting. I used Acrylic colours and brush pens for painting.







 How to paint?

You will need:
Steel/tin/ceramic kettles
Acrylic paint
Brushes
Waste cloth
Stencils (optional)
1. Wash kettles with soap and water and leave them out to dry in the sun. Start your project only when they are completely dry.
2. If you want a base colour for your kettles, take a fat brush and paint a base coat in the colour of your choice. Once dry, paint another coat with the same colour. Dry thoroughly.
3. You could use a contrasting colour for the handles or paint it in the same colour.
4. Choose a design of your choice and draw the designs on the kettle with a pencil and then paint on it.

Morning Breeze!



Morning breeze!



Tranquil morning walk

Outdoor with early birds;

Walking & Holding, natures hand,

Cool air breeze

Slaps my face

Softly with grace!

Gentle breeze flows languidly;

Reach passing through woods, orchards

Mountains, sea and meadows;

with sweet, whiffed cool touch

And changes the silent world!



Listening to the tune of the breeze,

she sings to me through needles and leaves

nature's song can be seen in the trees!

Songs of beauty,

just a rhythm

without any words;

That breaks silence of nature

to incarnate fusion of nature.

It’s pleasing to my ears;

Celestial cool touch lifts my soul.

Usher inner peace!
