The exotic life

I began painting with acrylics, and that remains my medium of choice for converting most of my photographs into art. The photos I choose are usually of colorful birds or flowers. I tend to stick to the real colors for both, as that is how one identifies them for who they are. Even in the few abstracts I have done, the sanctity of the living “specimen” is maintained to the best of my ability. However, the background is my playground and each one of them takes a while to develop in my mind before it materializes on canvas. I take as much effort in the foreground, as I do in the background. In many instances it maybe an expression of how the main subject fills my brain and heart. Light resisting, bright and super blendable Sennelier and Liquifast acrylics are a dream to work with. I do still love the student paints by masterclass, especially their black and crimson red. Because it is just a black, not carbon, or ivory or intense or charcoal!
