A painter painting a painter... by Nalini Bhat

A painter painting a painter painting!

A humble tribute to the great master on the site. The title is a tongue twister. It means me, a painter who painted Steve painting! You can see the hand signing at the bottom.
Work still in progress.

Really like this, since i'm a newbie on PIL..i don't know who Steve is...but I love your painting!! How in the world do you do sooo...many!! it takes me forever to finish just one..

Thanks Peggy. Steve is a great artist on this site, very kind and inspiring man. His wife put up his picture where he was painting. so i got the idea of painting him, painting the wall mural. You can see his photo(the same one I painted) on his thumbnail and also on the 1st page of most popular.
If you tell me whyit takes long for you to finish I can give tips on making it really fast.

Thanks, I'll take all the help I can get!!! I don't have any "formal" art lesson...just what I have picked up from "doing" and learned from artists work.. your style is so loose and free...I like that!!!

peggy, I am also totally self taught except for a friend who introduced me to water colors and charcoals. My suggestion would be to use big brushes, acrylic paints and for practice do abstracts in the beginning. I buy rolls of primed canvas and use gesso and water for acrylics. I just start painting with big brushes and later after it has taken certain form go over the detail. Try this way and see how you do.

Thanks..when I finish the "project" I'm on..I'll do just that..have some large canvases that are just beggin for something on them...will let you know how it turns out!!

Artist Statement
for Nalini Bhat
Nalini BhatEverything is art to an artist
Like the dancer's feet dance continuously,like the writer's pen writes,like the river flows,my hands paint.
Painting is an absolute passion for me. I also write short stories,childrens' stories and run a nonprofit Indian classical dance (Bharatanatyam) school. Adhishray is my nickname. I also paint under my name Nalini. I have been painting since my college days. My first solo art show was inaugurated by the former prime minister of India,Mr.Vajpayee. Many of my works have won awards. My husband,son and family are very supportive of my work.
Pil has been a wonderful site and I have got tremendous support and encouragement from all the great artists here. Thank you every single artist on this site.

What do you think of art classes using other peoples work for teaching, is it a good idea to see how other artist form paintings or should they try to be...
I can almost 'smell' this painting Graham. It is very very good. I do not like the idea of using other peoples work for teaching or for anything else really. ... view answer
