2011 Calendar..


A few days back I visited the museum to see the painting exhibition of renowned artist Cheong Soo Pieng at the Singapore Art Museum..The paintings were enchanting!! What I loved about the paintings were elongated limbs and torso, almond-shaped faces which are signature of his masterpieces!!

I really loved his style and incorporated it in my new sketches :) Now my ladies have almond shaped faces and big eyes as well!!



I made a few more sketchs.. then digitally painted them . Last week I sat down every evening  to I put them all together..  I finally by Sunday I had made my very first 2011 Calendar!! Yipee!!

2011 calendar

 All the paintings are associted with the months.. For example.. Polka dot French hens in April for Easter.. Ganesha for Ganesh Chaturthi in September..and so on..



Here's a sneak peak of the front page of the Calendar..



 I think they would make a pretty Christmas/new year gift!!

Hi Purnima, thanks for visiting ObsessiveCreative. Thanks for your kind words. I like your art blog, love the illustrations. Actually I did the illustrated recipes for "They Cook and Draw" and they haven't posted them :-( I guess I'll resubmit.
