Wall Art

Happy New Year to all... Thank you all for reading, commenting & constantly inspiring me... Thought I'll start the year with my favourite subject... - Painting a wall.... This is what we did one weekend in August.... A view from my mirror... The painting is not yet complete... but only I know where the flaws are - We've used all mediums of paint... normal wall paint, acrylic, pencils, crayons, sketch pens... everything we could find..
These blocks came all the way from Jaipur ... specially for my wall...
Another look...
Slowly my wall transformed into a canvas...
A complete view... of the wall...

A better view... with my dining table in the forefront..

Did you like it??? What do you think??

  20. Hello, I have never been to your site
    but it is lovely.
    I am an artist for 27 yrs so would just like to give a tip......your stunning painting of the peacock would work alittle better if you repeated that dark square color(On far right) as a
    thinner band(top to bottom) on the far left inches from edge but not touching the peacocks beak........try putting a scrap piece of paper cut in thin band and laying it on photo.....you will see it keeps your eye from leaving the painting as it normally wants to because the peacocks beak is pointing us out of the painting.
    I believe it will frame your eye inside the painting. It is an incredible piece!! Keep Painting!!
    kindest regards,missy from the bayou

  22. I think this is fabulous! love the vibrant colours and passionate flow into space.

    I have also checked out the warli art on the wall, and, needless to say, I am inspired to try something.

    I've painted on wall in my daughter's room...not this elaborate, just the kiddie stuff. Have been thinking of posting it for sometime. Should do that:)

    Keep going girl!

  24. How did I miss this post? Wow! While you say the painting was easier than deciding what to paint, you have to be an artist to paint something recognizable on a wall! Awesome work!! And here's to the entire team!

    I am v interested in what mix of paint you used to block print.

    Do send me an email, please!:)
