In love with colours!!

© Written by Tarang Sinha







They enhance beauty
They reflect passion and verve
In love with colours!!



I love books! I love reading fiction since my childhood. I love reading contemporary women/romance fiction. There was a small library in my home. Shelves stacked with different genre of novels. Children were not allowed to read novels but I read many secretly.

Then some 4-5 years back, a special desire burgeoned. Desire to write! And it's growing day by day. That's why I love spending time on my blog!!

Recently, I have developed a deep desire to paint. I often visit some painting blogs and they leave me awestruck...every time!! But one question always disturbs me..."Am I good enough to paint beautifully?"

When I was in 11th Std. we were asked to draw a diagram in Physics. When I presented the diagram to my Physics teacher, he looked at the drawing for a long moment then looked at me and asked "Are you from Maths stream?"

"No sir, Biology." I replied.

"Don't they throw your practical file out of the lab?" He asked.

Well, they didn't because diagrams are integral part of Biology and I tried my level best but you can imagine the level of my drawing skill!!!

But the desire to paint skillfully is inexplicably growing deeper. So finally after long time of procrastination, I've decided to try and learn. I bought a drawing notebook, pencil, eraser, ruler sharpener and colours like an enthusiastic child. Well, for painting I'm just a child.

I have started learning & practicing. Suggestions are most welcome especially for Water Colours!!! I love Water color painting!!! I'm doing theek-thaak (As per my standards, I'm still bad okay) with pencil colours but when I use Water Colour it gets smudged and looks ugly. So, please any suggestion or tips regarding Water Colour (Regarding colour, brush or technique) Or even Pencil Colours) is highly appreciated!!

I hope I keep my desire and enthusiasm alive and one day I can show you some of my works!! :)

  4. Good luck with your painting. I know many poets who also paint. I used to do a bit myself. Your post made me think about getting back to it again. Colors DO enhance beauty. Without color, it would be a very dull world.

    Thanks for sharing with Poets United. Here is my share:

  11. I am bad at drawing but have made 2-3 paintings. All I do is borrow a sketch and trace it and color it. I am neat at doing things. When you complete a painting like that, there is immense satisfaction in it. Try that.

  12. Good start Tarang. Keep drawing. Get hold of different brush sizes to start with. You might need at least 4 to 5 sizes to start off with. Point size and size 1 will help you define outlines. Size 4, 6 etc will help you paint small to medium sized regions. sizes 8-12 will help you cover a larger area,(like skies, grounds etc..) And try to experiment with the amount of water to use. Precision comes from experience. Good luck :)
