Today yet again I share the same statement as I do before everything I post. Okay, so I haven’t been able to post for the past seven months blah blah blah (fill it in yourself 🙂 ). This time it wasn’t my studies, exams or mood swings (i hate to say that) so, I had been terribly ill (ground breaking/ shaking illness as I call it) for the past six months straight. A rather contagious illness actually, I’ll be discussing it in the next post this week since this post isn’t at all about that. So, no writing, sketching and painting for the past months however, a previous work that holds immense value to me would be shared here.
After several rough patches, physical and emotional breakthroughs and misery finally, I am back on my track and have started doing and enjoying things i used to do before. So presenting an eagle sketch on sketch paper. Dark charcoal on paper (cant recall the dimensions.. oops!).
This one is among the very few sketches which didn’t take much time and were made instantaneously. Moreover, with this (and many more other things) I believe that the things done and decisions made instantaneously are often more rewarding than those with long term planning. (Trying to work on it in my life as well.. lets hope so).
Although I’ve not been currently involved in any of art related activities so far mainly because of my exams and chiefly because of my mood swings you can say.I decided to share some of my previous sketches.
Drawing horses has always been challenging.Their thigh region,their muscular structure and their belly is not as easy to get right at the very first go.I had a hard time drawing their belly,I erased it for like more than ten times before I was satisfied.
This site mentioned in the end has been a tremendous help to every feature and every posture of the horse I desired to draw.Okay so this has been the first sketch so far.I like it and I had the same image in mind while making it.
Another one that I made was a total mishap.I didn’t like it and it did not turn out to be exactly how I wanted.The main idea was to draw a unique horse posture so I selected two horses in an upright galloping position as indicated in this picture.
I tried to make a few changes in the faces and the posture but Alas! not too good. So i entitled it as “So afraid of Making mistakes”.
Although my sketch didn’t come out to be up to that mark but still I am sharing it because I think you should share your mistakes as well with your achievements and capability in your work.
And lastly here is a collage of Eight different horses in different postures. It involves horses in real life and a few ones from fictional characters like the Pegasus and the Unicorn.
I have only used 2B,4B,6B and 8B pencils and no charcoal.
A few days back i went to an art exhibition held at my college library.Everything was pretty good over there but one sketch specifically grabbed my attention.I stood there for a long time looking at the beauty and the hidden meaning behind that sketch.
Here goes the sketch
Its about a bitter truth that cannot be said but only seen in a man’s eyes,can only be felt by a woman’s heart,can not be ignored,can not be discarded,can not be eliminated,no woman can escape from it,it’s not to be laughed at,not to be trusted ….
Its a “MAN’S GREED” .… which is never fulfilled throughout his life … Never satisfied …Always keeps growing and grooming in his heart his eyes… never refrained … No one can touch its boundaries … It never rests and is never rusted … Which is always hungry …. Just like a huge reptile that kills and victimizes every weak creature that comes in its way ….which has no mercy …filled with selfishness … It’s the lust that has no end … And which is the only power that a coward man can use.
And a “WOMEN’S FEAR” ….which keeps her away from herself… which provokes selflessness in her …which pushes her deep down into the darkness of the world ..which penetrates deep into her soul …which haunts her dreams for years …kills her confidence … her grace …her peace of mind and thinking abilities … It’s just like a tornado …that travels and wipes off everything that comes in its way …it’s the fear that makes a woman fall into a man’s arms …without her will …with her body trembling …her soul injured …her grace crucified …the tears have become dry but the grief surrounds the living dead daughter of Hawwa …and the pride of Adam …
The fear of greed …the fear of lust ….encircles a woman’s life.No matter where she goes,no matter what she does,she’ll always have to face those eyes and those words.
Sometimes i think that even Adam soul would tremble after looking that what’s happening to his daughters here.In the name of Love,In the name of relationship,In the name of revenge and sometimes by its original name “LUST”.
I wonder how an Adam’s son can behave even worst than dogs and pigs just for a piece of flesh???
Okay … If you don’t believe me just think about a moment that you have had a huge fight with a male friend of yours.What would be the one sentence that he’ll say in extreme anger …????
“Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. It matters that you don't just give up." - Stephen Hawking (Died March 14th 2018 on Albert Einsteins Birthday & on the same day Galileo died. R.I.P. You Will Be Missed . . . )
