Welcome!  Watercolor paints are customarily evaluated on a few key attributes .


about me:

I started painting since childhood . Visual imagination is a divine gift to me from my parents. I want to be more versatile and inventive artist. When, I started to experiment with shape and colour, the unreachability of nature beauty convey perceptual purity. This transformation is inevitable wherever I wishes to paint more than unmodified existence.In the dynamics of artistic culture, I believe aesthetic need is to be rooted in every paintings of mine. Choosing colour is fun, but there’s more to choosing an effective colour scheme than simply picking in general. In my palette, mainly concentrated on emotions associated with warm, cool, light, dark, vivid and dull, selected and arranged in order to convey a specific colour impression to bring certain emotions . In my water colour landscape painting, lighting and lines of composition give tranquility sense and create a mysterious atmosphere. The difficulty aspects in deciding which part of the landscape want to draw probably derive my experience. I love painting, because nature is with full of colours, controls the rhythms of my life. As per the figurative painting concerns, I do much research to have a theme and always try to give the social message in all my works.
