Begin Again

Watched this movie a few days back and liked it . A catchy title , at least for me at this point in life . Where I just quit my job as as VFX artist and facing a great dilemma to either study MFA or get into doing business in my hometown in a whole different realm . This title intrigues me into starting arts again , to open a new page and get going (this time seriously) .Lets see where this is going ...

Also check out the time-lapse video of the painting process below :

Photographed it specifically to paint

It was around 11 in the morning , just woke up from bed . I wanted to do a painting with a composition that has very strong lighting . I found this pot in the outdoor corner of my house . Its actually an hanging pot that is almost touching the ground . Liked the way it was partly lit by sunlight and hoped it would bring out realism in the painting . Took a bunch of snaps and imported it in the 'Brushes' app on the iPad . Traced out a rough outline as a reference and started painting the rest . It was a rewarding experience after a very long time . Finally , imported the painting into Adobe PS in iPad , applied a vignette and color corrected just a pinch .
