Ballet Dancer

Dance has been a favourite subject for me for a long time.I like every form of dance,Indian,western, African or any folk dance. These dance poses makes my hand dance on the paper to catch that rhythm n flow of the dancer. Its so poetic if its performing on the stage with Lighting effects.
So this post is my exercise to make my hands free again....

Kya wo mai hi tha...

Garam garam chai ke sath thandi barish ka maja !
Ek ek boond ke sath chadhta wo nasha!

Kya wo main hi tha....

Kati patang ke piche bhagta wo ladka
Fati patang bhi mil jaye to nachta wo ladka

Kya wo main hi tha.....

Thande kuyein ke pani me jab khada rahta tha
Chanchal machhaliyon ke shprsh se thartharata

Kya wo mai hi tha.......

Pal pal bhagate huye suraj ko canvas pe utarata
Bas rangon ke siway kuch bhi na dikhta tha

Kya wo mai hi tha... aur ab

Shahar ki bhid ke sath bhagta huaa...
Roj apne andar kuchh badalte huye chup chap sa dekhta

Kya ye main hi hoon!
Kya ye main hi hoon!!

(This is my 1st attempt to write poem in Hindi and before this i think i have written 2,3 poems in Marathi. I am new to this poem thing so pardon me if i am missing out on something :) )

I am still in competition

Like I said in last post, i started painting on canvas after long gap that's why i was not able to send my painting to any painting competition also. Last month I sent this painting as entry to the Bombay Art Society competition and it was selected.This painting was hung in Jehangir Art Gallery From 4th to 9th Feb.

Back to square one

Painting on canvas has always been my 1st love. I like many other things but when I complete a painting, the satisfaction I get, can't be compared to anything else. This painting is acrylic on canvas (30"x36"). I think its my first complete portrait after a long gap of more than 4 years. Initially it was not easy as I had been doing portraits in Photoshop and the sketching with pencil but not with REAL colors for sometime. Was a bit nervous during the initial two days but on third and last day I got it under control.
I got a few negatives and positives from this painting exercise. Most important thing that I derived: never stop working otherwise u will loose your freedom with that medium. This painting brought back my confidence of doing portraits again. Doing landscapes or compositions is relatively easy because you don't need to be precise with the colors and tones. So by overcoming these difficulties I got a good result. I know this is not the best painting I have ever done but I'm happy that at least I got a start.
Thanks to Binal who posed for this painting and Alex who helped me with lighting.
