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.

You are so thoughtful! I went over the sky already, especially around the birds. I'm moving back forth to other paintings now. Plan to do more on the lower half when I'm more relaxed about it.
How do you paint so many so fast?
over 5 years
I use large brushes,actually do the whole painting in one or two brushes and work really fast. When I am done, i keep the brushes immersed in water and never bother to clean up or anything. so may be i have more time for just painting!

Dearest Adhishray, I don't know how to express to you the warmness in Steve's heart when I showed him this. Such a wonderful and thoughtful act on your part. He says "yeah that's how Adhishray is, she's very thoughtful, bless her heart" Said with a big smile I might add. He also claims to be a big fan of your art an I see why! You have done a remarkable job and he loved the way you painted you signing. I have uploaded it to his desktop, so when he gets back on it will be the first thing he sees. He is on some pretty powerful meds and they cause alot of lightheadedness which in turn leads to nausea, so the computer doesn't work for him right now. It's really to bad because it would make being off his feet alot easier for him. He misses all of you on PIL so very much and is quite overwhelmed at everyones concern and good wishes. There are really no words to thank you enough for your support and kindness. He will be back on soon and untill then I will be sure to let you know what is going on with him. A big hug from both of us Adhishray, Sincerely, Steve and Teresa

Thank you so much, Teresa for your lovely letter. I hope steve feels better soon and be back on the site. He is sort of my mentor as he never failed to encourage and inspire me.I am glad you both like my little tribute to him.

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.

I didn't find this one easy to paint but feel my reference material let me down as I didn't have enough detail to understand full and it was probably a mistake...
Animals are difficult and i is important to have sufficient reference shots to give the correct physical characteristics. I think you did a great job on them... view answer
