Reinventing Jamini Roy

                                                   Acrylics, 9x12 inches

It's been a couple of months since I have been wishing to reproduce some of the works of One of my favourite artists, Shri Jamini Roy. He has been a great influence and his works are close to my heart. I love his simplistic and elegant style. I have tried to recreate this work, inserting in 'Me' though. Like the necklace which is partly visible in his work has been completed here. The colours too are a  variation. Eyes are definitely a deviation from his. He's unmatchable and yet I hope you like it :)

I should definitely thank Gloria of Gloria's Blog Viva La Vida for her Inspiration which finally provoked me into action. Her new year resolution finally set me going as well.

My daughter, Anoushka's (Krishna's) effort
she is 8 years old

A commendable one at that, what say? Do click here to view the complete picture. You will not regret it:)

Hi Deepa,
Thank you for the kind words on my recent post. It was a coincidence I too was checking your art posts with Jui and talking about you while we also had multiple talks about our desire to shift to Dubai. I hope we do meet sometime. You are in Dubai right?
Btb Anushkas new painting on Jamini based, has come out superb. I shall comment on her post separately.
Cheers
Sush

Hi Deepaz. How are you doing friend? Sorry I haven't got back here but it seems something is always happening. I'm going to look at your work again, be right back....Jamini Roys paintings are just beautiful, awesome. Your daughter's piece is wonderful! Tell her I said way to go!! I think it's great that both of you are artists. Thank you for the mention and I am so glad that I played a role in your inspiration. That makes me feel very happy. Thank you Deepaz! Okay I am going now to your daughter's blog to leave her a message. Take care dear.

So lovely! I love the warm colors that you used. She is beautiful, and I'm sure Jamini Roy would be very pleased and flattered with both yours and Lil A's wonderful paintings!

I would prefer to use the word re-imaging instead of re-inventing Jaimini Roy. Beautifully done. I love the colours in of your work.

As for your daughter's art work, all I can say is God Bless !

Chintan Gupta said...

Like mother, like daughter :)

I loved the inspired art. The eyes, in both the art works are amazing and absolutely remarkable <3

Colors, the skin tone, I think it all works quite well in your version too :) Keep up...

Saru Singhal said...

I liked your work more. I don't know anything about art but love the use of colors in your work.

Speechless for your daughter...Gifted and talented. It runs in her genes...

Purba said...

Anoushka is quite the artist! How old is she?

And your paintings are always beautiful - they never disappoint.

Your Jamini's Roy reinvention is simply fantastic, though not completely depicts the original. Nice work i must say, i liked it.

Wow! I am very please to see your masterpiece of reinventing Jamini Roy.

They do look alike but I actually love both equally the same.
Jamini Roy's one is more poster feel whereas yours are added and reinventing with more sweet, gentle and feminine feel & touch!

You are a very good artist that look into the overall mood. Be it the heart, mind and spiritual touch.

Thank you for making me smile Deepa!

She is gorgeous with her ornaments on!
Ha..Ha..I feel like wearing sari now!
