Night Garden

Last year just before Christmas a friend of mine from work commissioned me to work on an artwork for her newly renovated home. I cannot write in words how elated I was! It was something I always wanted to do and now I had been given a chance to do it.

And so I started working on this project last year. Slowly but surely the artwork started taking shape. I do not think I ever felt as happy as I did while painting it. It was pure love for each colour , for each stroke of the brush, for every detail in the florals and for each stroke of ink added to it to bring out the darkness within.

I would like to call it the night garden.

Couture 2014 – Giambattista Vali 

Today I have illustrated 3 of my favorite looks from the Giambattista Vali Couture 2014 collection.  It was really hard to pick my favorites cause the collection was like a dream. Wish I had more time to draw them all.

I have been trying to develop my own style in illustrating and have decided to go with this.  It still needs a lot of work and only practice will make it perfect. As I have never been the best at drawing facial features so I am going to focus on the clothing and the shoes. Love drawing big and long hair though 🙂

There are a lot of ideas playing around in my mind and I can’t wait to get started on them. So look forward to it!

Illustration of the day – Tadashi Shoji

Hey everyone! So I have decided to do at least one illustration per day to make myself draw everyday.
The Resort 2015 fashion week wrapped up a while back and I have been looking forward to illustrating some of my favorite looks from it.
For today I have illustrated a black gown by Tadashi Shoji.
