Scenery in Soft Pastels

Tried creating something with Soft Pastels (Chalk Pastels) today and it was such a task! 

This medium is not only messy but cumbersome as well.

Carey Mulligan as Bathsheba Everdene




Thomas Hardy’s ‘Far From the Madding Crowd’ is one of my favorite fiction works. The protagonist, Miss Bathsheba Everdene is a proud and independent woman who comes across as inspiring as well. This is also an important feminist character in English literature. This portrait is of British actress Carey Mulligan who played Bathsheba’s character in the movie based on this novel (by the very same name).

Jai Bholenath!




This quick abstract art is done in Wax Crayons. I got this thought today morning while waking up. Here I have tried to state that Lord Shiva rules the whole cosmos and five elements that make up life namely Sky, Earth, Fire, Air and Water (respectively) are within Shiva. That is, Lord Shiva is time itself, the embodiment of all seen and unseen, concrete and abstract, light and dark, entire universe and all life. He is everywhere, in everything and in all elements. He is a symbol of peace and selflessness, a hermit who lives a Spartan existence, far away from all desires but gives everything to those who revere Him and stay on the morally right path. 

Jai Bholenath!
