About my art journey
Today I want to talk about my art journey a little. I started writing this blog when I started my Make/30 project. I was not painting so much before I started this project and I wanted the push that makes me paint every day. So I decided to paint 30 flowers in 30 days.
I wanted to register on Kickstarter but because I am from India, I was not able to do it. So I thought why not do it by my self.
I used to paint with watercolors and ink only. But that year – 2019, my loving husband gifted me a set of Gouache colors and I decided to use Gouache for that project. I couldn’t paint 30 flowers, but I painted 24 and one of them got sold.
I know it is only one painting that got sold but it gave me the motivation to do more. It was in November 2020. In January 2020 I thought to take my art hobby seriously and I started posting on Instagram, I created a Facebook page and I started posting here regularly.
I also started creating digital illustrations which I love the most. I created my paintings into digital artwork. Until this time I was painting flowers only. I wanted to step out of my comfort zone so I decided to start another personal project where I am creating digital illustrations of animals starting from A to Z. I am so happy that my skills have been improved a lot from when I started.
I had to stop creating digital illustrations because my laptop is old and right now I don’t have enough funds to upgrade it. Anyway, I sold 3 of my art prints and I am very very happy about it. I can’t believe people love my work and are ready to pay. It was time to step further out of my comfort zone. I opted for landscape painting classes. Let me tell you I was so afraid of painting the whole paper. I was so afraid of painting the landscapes but after taking the class, I learned a lot of things.
This month I sold another two paintings. My little art business is growing slowly. I am also planning to teach watercolor paintings online. Thank you so much for your support.
