Rhododendron

Art Description

I have always wanted to paint a Rhododendron. I finally got the confidence to do it on a canvas thanks to the Haa Mural Project where we got the opportunity to fill the walls of Haa with beautifully painted flowers. The technique, the tone and the colors that I got to experiment with in this artwork filled me with greater confidence to paint more out of my comfort zone. The rarity of these plants mostly found on the sacred mountains adds to its profound beauty.

About the Artist

I was introduced to art in 2008 and started my artistic dream in Class Six when I was inspired by my sister who used to draw. My father introduced me to VAST Bhutan for which I am eternally grateful. I discovered a platform that gave me innumerable opportunities to learn and grow. I am one of the many recipients of the VAST Bhutan art scholarships. To increase my skills in art, I completed my studies in Applied Arts from Maharaja Sayajirao University of Vadodara ( a renowned art college in India) in the year 2020. I am currently interning at VAST Bhutan trying to give back  the  kindness that  I have received.

 I mostly paint portraits and landscapes but also enjoy making illustrations/designs. The tools I use to create are pencil and acrylic. I love painting landscapes as it gives me a peaceful feeling and I can fantasize about how my happy place looks. Portraits give me an opportunity to play with colors and they make great gifts for the people I know. I enjoy painting portraits of elderly people and young children, and their genuine expressions of joy and happiness is what I want to capture.I want people who view my work to be happy and at peace. I would want to be known as a realistic artist as I love to do more detailed work and can patiently spend time on each of my creations. My love for detail began when I was studying graphic design. The detailing works really helped me cultivate my patience. Raja Ravi Verma, an Indian artist and Michelangelo’s  works are my all time favourites.
