Of promises

It's not that I've forgotten my promises. Not one bit. I've been busy scrounging for raw materials, and they are a little hard to come by. Once I get them all, I can get back to my promises :)

P.s Am looking for soda bottle caps and four square pieces of good solid ply wood :)

Part 4

Well now, a confession. This one was done a few days back. Before I started the whole series of solemn promises that is. But I am actually quite proud of myself here. And I like this quite a lot. This was ink on paper, just like that. I was looking at  Kerala Mural paintings, wanting to draw one for a long time. I found one that I liked and drew on the back of a rough paper with pen. Honestly, I dint think it would come out well...

I want to do the same thing in fair, on better paper, and this post is a prologue to that. I start drawing today.... Hope the "real" one turns out good.

Looking at paints itself is an inspiration....

This is an imitation of Artist Namboodiri's sketches. Quite happy the way this has turned out. This has to suffice for yesterday and today, because i started one yesterday, spilled water on it and spoilt it. drew this again today morning.

Making the best out of me...

Lets call 'Julie and Julia' an inspiration....

I've been whining to anyone who would listen that I've lost touch with the art world. Neither do I pick up brushes nor I swirl around glue or snip snap paper bits...I've decided to give myself a break. A break from killing what little of artistic/ creative streak that I have in me.  I know its not going to be easy. The moody me will have lots of reasons to not do anything and not stick to my words, hence this public announcement.

"For the next one month, starting tomorrow, 
I am going to do something creatively productive, 
 I could paint, draw, or do little pieces of paper art, or cook, or write. 
Whatever it takes me,
 I will do it.
 *solemn promise to myself.*"

P.s the results of the promise will be posted here everyday. 
p.p.s Whenever I put up pictures, kindly excuse since I'll be relying on my poor little phone camera lens.
p.p.p.s Wish me luck :)
