Repercussions means consequences or impact or outcome of an action. It could mean from anything subjective to objective, from social, political to family or within oneself...from personal life to what’s happening around the world. There are lot of implications from home to community, from nature to environment, from relationships to media, from de-constructing myths/tales/legends to regions... Everything we do has a rippling effect. Even the slightest action, whether consciously or unconsciously, brings about a repercussion even though we do not realize it.

This is what I was busy with for the past 5 months. Expecting all your support, cooperation, love and prayers, we move forward. Please do join us.

How to paint Sunset in 5 simple steps

“A sunset is the sun’s fiery kiss to the night.” 
 Crystal Woods

Preparing the base

 After adding yellow, yellow ochre and Indian yellow

 After adding orange

After adding scarlet lake 

After adding raw sienna

 after adding raw umber, the sunset is ablaze...

I have used dry brush technique. No water to dilute the colours. Paints straight from the tube. I love the effect and feel of it. Was it useful? 
Please do leave me your feedback.
