This is what I have been busy doing these past few days.....! I saw this painting on SHP's blog a few weeks ago, when she did her artist profile on Vishal Misra, a painter whose work I have long admired. And I was completely smitten by this one, aptly titled "Jewellery Series triptych". The colors, the composition, the bold strokes, the stylized abstractness, the tribal look...loved it all.
But the chances of my ever getting my hands on this original are about 0%, so I took matters into my own hands, literally! And tried to copy it....with a few small changes, not out of choice, but more due to lack of technique!!
Not anything nearly as gorgeous as the original, but for about 800 bucks for the canvas, 4-5 hrs of work and a ton of fun, I'll take it! I hope Vishal Misra will not mind, after all imitation IS the sincerest form of flattery!
