''Pink Lotus'' mini canvas (commission)


Acrylic on canvas 
15cm x 15 cm
Commissioned work

Elements that I was requested to try and incorporate:
''Semi aerial view of a lotus with all hues of pink, dew drops, blue background, leaves''

FlickR photographs that I found while on my little research
before starting work (click on the lotus to go to the corresponding 
FlickR page by birdyboo) :


I exaggerated some elements, but the colours are drawn from 
these, click on the imgage to go to birdyboo's photostream:

A great weekend to all of you.
Thank you for the prolific comments on the 'Lalita' post. 

On a personal front, pressure is mounting .... to go back to a ''real'' job, 
so I have to make some serious choices now. 
I don't see myself without my artwork anymore,
but I have to wait and see how this plays out. 

Love.
dithi.

Bonjour Dithi! Quelle merveilleuse peinture! I love the the bold dramatic colors, it looks almost good to eat! Very simple and very nice. Je comprends tes doutes as to if you should find a real job or not. I think the best choice is to continue painting and try to find a "real" job related to art, where you can still use your talents and not be too frustrated with work. Have a wonderful Sunday! LuLu

Hey you guys! Thanks for the prompt posts on this colour-burst mini!

Lulu: c'est la vie mon amie! On n'a pas de choix quelque fois :(! Je vais essayer de continuer avec mon arte. Je vraiment l'ai besoin.

your work is lovely! How did you train yourself in this work?

Dithi said...

language_culture@ideology: Hello! I have only developed my work through practice, trial and error. My taste is heavily influence by the ethnic and folk, Indian colours and patterns. Thanks for your interest:)!

The dew drops look so real that I could reach out and catch one on my fingertip! Great work, Dithi!

Dithi said...

Thanks Aditi! i know, i usually want to make things look ''real'', but i made an exception here, no fun painting a dew drop if it doesn't look real!! hehe!

Hey Dee,

Kamon aacho? Lots of commissions..hmm..:-). Great! Its a blessing when one can turn a passion into a vocation...of course the sometimes the sheer joy and freedom of painting/writing what you want goes away, but it still feels good to be able to turn that passion into a job.

I'm saying this because of that para in your post about a "real job". I get this feeling sometimes too...and feel like I should be on staff of a magazine, earning a pay packet every month, working 9 to 9. But then I also realize that freelance writing (and in your case art) can be a career too...its different but it is a job too. Do think about it. (i know i know...i sound like a grandma...apologies).

Thanks everyone!

Chandana: The choice of anything else over art will happen (if it has to) if there is a choice no more.

Aditi said...

I have been reading through your blog and I hope you will always be able to choose to be an artist!!
