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.

Watercolour and pencil on blockingford watercolour paper. It is an illustration for a project that never came to fruition. The Spirit Firers are in graphite pencil over the painted background. I wanted the main character to be the strongest and so muted the airplanes .

This is a page out of my holiday sketchbook. I started working on it after visiting for the first time Pensthorpe Nature Reserve . When on holiday I like to do these type of illustrations to help remember places and things I have seen. This is another use of inktense painting set . Although the paper of the sketch book is not a watercolour quality the ever wet paint brushes I use do not over wet the paper and the paints are easy to wash on.

This was painted for my granddaughters, who went to Finland last December. The photo I used is one taken by my daughter in law. I loved the way the lights created a green swirl in the sky, framed by the ink black trees and white snow.
