Red Umbrella - Couple in Rain painting

and one more version of my Red Umbrella theme is here. After lots of sculpturing in my last project I decided to spend some time back to canvas painting over last weekend. I always wanted to add some more beautiful and romantic couple paintings to my Red Umbrella theme. Luckily there was a perfect size canvas board in my drawer, so I started working on it.

This is not only normal acrylic painting but I am learning pop art with this type of painting. I am not very good at it but yes I like spending time to learn new techniques. So have a look at it.

I have transferred newspaper on canvas board first. Let it dry and then I did all the drawing work with pencil. After that only job left was painting a black n red color and rain effect.

Moonlight Love - Boy proposing girl on moon portrayed on canvas

And here is my new mix media painting, I call it "Moonlight Love". I have used very less media elements, but this really looks very beautiful and based on creative idea. I really enjoyed making this painting. This picture portray a boy proposing girl sitting on moon. Blue background with moonlight effect with lots of stars makes this picture a very romantic gift for your partner.

Boy and Girl gives 3D effect because its created separately on different paper. I have done it with sketch pen first and then its added to main canvas board. This unique idea makes it feel like a 3D painting.

Elements Used.

  1. Sketch Pen 
  2. Cardboard paper to make 3D effect 
  3. Canvas Board Acrylic Colors
  4. Color Varnish 
  5. Heart shape stickers

Shivaji Maharaj Rajmudra Sculpture

I always like to do something new and creative in my art projects. Last time I started working on mix media painting and I successfully created beautiful painting of lord Buddha. This time I decided to do something new and I decided to create sculpture of || Rajmudra of Shivaji Maharaj ||. 

Shivaji Maharaj Rajmudra

I have used 16x20 inch size of canvas board for this sculpture. It took almost 45 hours for me to complete this Rajmudra. It was really a fun working on this project. I first created a stencil of this Rajmudra then with the help of this stencil I finished my drawing on the canvas board. I always used canvas board for only painting purpose this is the first time I have used it to make sculpture.

Embossed lettering effect with copper and black color gives it a perfect look.

Those who don't know history of this Mudra must be wondering what exactly is written on this sculpture. So let me help you all with the real meaning of this Murda.

(English) - The glory of this Mudra of Shahaji’s son Shivaji (Maharaj ) will grow like the first day moon. It will be worshiped by the world & it will shine only for well being of people.

(Sanskrit) - “प्रतिपच्चंद्रलेखेव वर्धिष्णुर्विश्ववंदिता शाहसुनोः शिवस्यैषा मुद्रा भद्राय राजते।”

(Marathi) -   प्रतिपदेचा चन्द्र जसा वाढत जातो, आणि सरे विश्व त्याला जसे वंदन करते, तशीच तशीच ही मुद्रा व् तिचा लौकिक वाढत जाईल…..!

"Shivaji Maharaj Rajmudra" is the official stamp of Shivaji Maharaj which was used on his official letters, Orders etc. Rajmudra was also "Royal coin" during the reign of ‘Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’

"You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger." - Gautama Buddha. One of the best quote by Buddha inspired me to make this lovely art. I am sharing my experience and some tips so new artists can replicate this lovely Buddha Painting easily.

Today I finished my new mix media project of "Lord Buddha". It's called as mix media art project because we use multiple mediums to prepare it. I have mentioned the list of stuff I used for this art, once you read it you will understand why its called as "Mix Media project".

Working on mix media painting is fun, you have no barriers and you can really use anything which you like to make your painting more alive. If you are new artist then you must learn this technique.
