Naqqashi; back to the past.

Back to work

Back to work

Back to work, its a slow process.
But i absolutely love the process, the making, the preparation.
Here’s my checklist,

  1. vasli (ready)
  2. burnishing (done)
  3. drawing and composition (almost satisfied with it, though i have a feeling i’ll keep tweaking the curly clouds till the painting is sold)
  4. qalam (ongoing)

Things yet untouched
I still have to mix the colours

working the Qalam

My shift to London has me deprived of a few miniature essentials.
Need to go shopping for

  1. Magnifying glass,
  2. Black paint,
  3. Art card.

Time to get back to the drill..
