Abstract Lord Ganesha Painting

I have made a new watercolor painting – Abstract Lord Ganesha. The artwork features the Hindu deity of good fortune and success, Lord Ganesha, also known as Ganapati.

With the abstract Ganesha design in focus, it also has a lot of color splashes and some floral design made with a sketch pen.

“Ganesha (Sanskrit: गणेश, Gaṇeśa), also known as Ganapati and Vinayaka, is one of the best-known and most worshipped deities in the Hindu pantheon.
Although he is known by many attributes, Ganesha’s elephant head makes him easy to identify. Ganesha is widely revered as the remover of obstacles, the patron of arts and sciences and the deva of intellect and wisdom.”

Some More Watercolor Splashes by Blule

She has also worked as an Industrial Designer for Fila, L’Oréal and many others.

Design Process: How I Made the Abstract Lord Krishna Painting

I recently posted here my new painting, the Abstract Lord Krishna. I am glad that it is being liked by lots! Now I am sharing the design process of the artwork…

Being a rather simple design, it did not take much time – it was completed in a span two days, collectively an effort of about 8 hours. But maintaining crispness of the lines and not losing the overall juice of the theme was bit challenging. As I have previously mentioned, I was actually inspired to draw it from a picture of the deity which made impressive use of line strokes to draw Lord Krishna (image attached in this post).

The final painting looks like this:

Abstract Lord Krishna Painting

I recently created an abstract Lord Krishna painting in watercolor. With the graceful Hindu deity playing flute at the center, a glowing sky-ish background completes the illustration.

This one is inspired by a very beautiful line art of Lord Krishna I saw, which is also given below. I was instigated by the design and immediately decided to work upon it as a painting.

“Krishna (Sanskrit: कृष्ण) is considered the supreme deity, worshipped across many traditions of Hinduism in a variety of different perspectives. He is recognized as the eighth incarnation (avatar) of Lord Vishnu, and one and the same as Lord Vishnu one of the trimurti and as the supreme god in his own right.”

Maria A. Aristidou Makes Paintings With Coffee

Art from coffee is much more than just latte art! Today, I am featuring coffee paintings made by a commercial coffee artist and illustrator, Maria A. Aristidou. This UK artist has created an impressive collection of artworks using coffee.

About her talent, she says on her Facebook page, “Firstly made by accident, coffee painting has really grown on me. Inspired by Pop Culture, I recreate my favourite characters using only coffee. Painting like I would with watercolors, I use many different blends and brands in order to get the right shade, depending on the design.

“Spirits of the Seasons” – Illustrations by Sanguis Gelidus

A year ago when I first posted (see this post) about this German artist Sanguis Gelidus (aka Jonas Jödicke), I had also thought to make some more posts featuring his works on the Wall of Wonders. But only because I concurrently had other things in mind, the idea was obscured and I have not posted more about him – it has been more than a year now.
Today, I am presenting a set of his most beautiful artworks, together named as “Spirits of the Seasons”.

“Spirits of the Seasons” is a group of four artworks, each one symbolizing a season via a wonderful animal illustration; spring, summer, autumn and winter are given the shape of beautiful beasts in these paintings.
