Devotion of an Angel


Devotion of an Angel, Acrylic painting, 5*5 inches

The painting of the angel is done on handmade paper. I bought 4 sheets of fab handmade paper sometime back during an exhibition and now I have started using it. if you look closely you could see dried leaf embedded in the paper.
Personally, I am very much in love with this painting. The photograph has not been able to capture all its beauty. 
What do you think,my friends?

I feel devotion is something inexplicable. It is an experience and each has one's own... Limiting it to words would really be restricting it...let it flow on...cherish those personal experiences:)

I am linking it up to A Thousand Words in Colours Dekor

She is a beautiful Angel. I love that paper. What a great idea to imbed dry leaf in paper. My 40 faces was done on Papel Amate which was wonderful to work with. Very textury. Thanks for sharing, she has a very calming effect.

Hand made papers give a lovely texture and an earthy feeling. Love the work, it has a serene soothing effect.

Did you use flash while shooting? Next time try taking it in natural light.

@Veda, Thanks:) The first photo with the white background was taken in natural light...but the clarity of the photo isn't complete.

@Julie, even I LOVE handmade paper, anything handmade for that matter:))

@Lakshmi Rajan, both were taken without flash; the first in natural light and the second in tubelight.

Thanks a lot DS, Magiceye, Madhumati, Nethra, Vyankatesh, Team G,Anto, Mohinee, indigenou and Purba.

Deepa, you love portrait painting and handmade paper too?

This is so good!
I love the simple and minimal colours you introduced here:)
So soft and lovely,her lip, her statement white eyes, her hair accessory and her pair of wings....

Thank you for taking time to share with us. Deepa, you must have your wall of fame to display such beautiful masterpiece!

Happy weekends and see you again.

Deepa, she is beautiful and serene! Her wings and tiara look shimmery and light. I'm sure the paper's texture give this piece even more to marvel at. Wonderful piece!
