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.

Sabari Nadh is available for private bookings

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 .

Title or Location: Fonte Pequena, Alte, Portugal
Alte is a village in the Mountains above the Algarve in Portugal. I visited the village to sketch the natural springs and bathing pools, which the village is famous for. The crystal clear waters of the pools, the stone and white painted buildings and the bubbling springs provide many opportunities for sketching and painting. A great day there and lots of inspiration for future paintings.

This is a love scene that is inspired by a Chinese show I am currently watching: The forbidden flower. I took it as an opportunity to expand my knowledge and learn how to draw two whole bodies profiles and practice on how to draw a hand for the fist time! The most difficult part was to find the exact distance for her hand to fall into his. I hope it evokes love to all of you. Many friends have requested a follow up to this Confession saga, so I am currently working on The Answer to The Confessio

This is a water color painting based on a photo I took last year when visiting MT. Love the wide open spaces and the beautiful sky. This photo was taken while sitting and relaxing along a river in Bigfork. Love to enjoy the views and then incorporate into my paintings. Water colors are such a great choice for landscapes because of the way they flow and blend together just like nature.

At the age of 49, I decided to learn to paint. I have never even sketched or painted in my life. I love watercolor paintings so I started with that and I found that I love it. In February I committed to the 100 Day Project movement with D. Michelle Perry on her 100 Days of Wonder group. Each week she was giving us our Words of Wonder for each day. Day 35 was "Dew". I had already practiced water droplets for fun so I wanted to use them in a close up image of a leaf with dew on it. Th
