It far outweighed any expectations I had . The emails clearly stated what was required , and although I was nervous , Sabari quickly put my nerves at ease . Everything was well thought out, including a plan b because of the weather . I really enjoyed being in a small group , the session was friendly and informal , we were encouraged to go at our own pace , with Sabari making suggestions that helped boost my confidence. I had the most wonderful experience and I am really looking forward to booking on for my next session. Sabari is an absolute gem.

ARTISTS
Sabari Nadh
I'm a digital artist who completed his bachelor's in fine arts and currently pursuing masters in arts
Art has always been a part of my life , from broken up pieces of crayons and making a mess in the living room with colors I was privileged enough follow it to a stage in my life where I know it's purpose in my life and in the whole world itself. I have done works in many mediums, I have been learning watercolor for the last ten years or so. Watercolor is a medium that's brings a certain level of satisfaction in one's work. My previous experiences includes working as art teacher where I helped students to tailor their individualistic take on artistic practices and expression. One experiences ebb and flow with art, it's never a constant straight path but if we push it through it's like unlocking a language for yourself.

I am trying to paint in watercolour without doing to much drawing first. I was pleased with this attempt.My Dad used to grow lovely roses and Sweer Williams. He always gave Mum red roses on her birthday or wedding anniversary. Sadly they both died a few years ago but painting these flowers brought back happy memories.

I find painting dogs very interesting because their appearance is so varied. This golden doodle is from a friend's photo of her pet Gracie. I painted a loose background in watercolours then painted negatively to pick out the wavey and curly areas of her coat. Gouache picked out some lighter areas. I find painting without a drawing creates a looser result. I start with the nose and measure from there.

Two days before hurricane Beryl made landfall on the Texas coast, the first outer band hit Houston with thunder, lightning and pouring rain. The sky darkened too and turning to my brushes helped me deal with the anxiety. It was also good practice for working with masking fluid.

Once COVID hit, and we knew we weren't going anywhere, my family & I decided to get chickens. We picked out these 3 chicks from a local farm. We created a brooder in our living room, and my kids enjoyed creating a parkour/maze for them to run around in. During a moment of rest, I captured a photo of them & knew that I wanted to paint it one day. Additional info - watercolor on Arches, size 8x8
