The flower you like the most

I have always loved painting flowers. If you are following me from the start, you must know about the Make 30 project where I decided to paint 30 flowers in 30 days. There are about 400, 000 flowering plant species in the world. Find your favorite one and start painting. My favorite flower is a lotus. Have a look at my recent lotus paintings.

Things around you

If you are sitting on your desk, try to paint things on your desk. If you are sitting outside, try to paint trees and houses around you or you can paint the sky. Right now the sky is my favorite subject to paint. I will share my latest paintings in the next blog. One time I painted things on my desk in my sketchbook and I realized all things I have on my desk are either Yellow or Blue! It was fun to paint them.

I think this was the first time I painted things on my desk. Before this, I used to paint flowers or plants only. It is very important to explore new things, in art and in life as well.

Your favourite food dish

What is your favorite dish? When I was a child I used to eat Dosa only. It’s a South Indian dish made with rice and very tasty vegetable sabzi. Yummmm! I recently drew a fruit tart illustration. Trust me, it is the best thing to draw if you are a foodie.

Your face looking in the mirror or your family’s face

Have you ever observed your self so close in the mirror? I tried to paint my self, my brother, and my husband. I laughed so hard when I drew my brother so funny.
