My room Posted by Hello

This one is my favorite, it has character.

I know nothing about painting but I do enjoy art. I enjoy looking at it. The type of art that I enjoy the most is the kind that tells me something about the person who painted it just by looking at it.

Something is wrong with the prespective.

Also, If you were listed on I would totally send you some hate mail. Why? well, You should have grouped all the paintings in one post, because they will end up taking so much space on safat.

Ihath, :)

I'm glad you liked it. And I'm wondering what it tells you about me! If anything.
I know what it tells me though..
I didn't have a gorgeous nude model to practice my drawing skills on, I ended up with a coupld of books:S

Shurouq said...

You're definitely right. I knew it while I was working on it too, but with watercolor what's done is done and can't be fixed. (just like when I try applying eye makeup) :)

I guess I need more practice
Thanks a lot, your comments are highly appreciated

Shurouq said...

Oh and sorry for the separate posts, Tata and everyone.

I know how unforgiving watercolors are (been there, done that) but are you telling me you don’t sketch anything before painting?

Another thing, You don’t really need a ‘gorgeous’ nude model to practice drawing or painting, a fatty will do (would be funny to trace the curves) Actually it would be awesome to find anyone who’s willing to strip butt naked and model.
Everybody got ‘anatomy’, so good luck with that.

And yes, get back to painting.

Hi Tata,
Hmmm, I said "gorgeous".. and you assumed that a fatty can't be "gorgeous"!

Thanks for the tips :)

Hey shurouq, first time on ur blog, I like ur paintings alot! They have something different about them!

And this one of ur room, although the perspective is not perfect, I think it adds some kind of distinction to the place, makes it alot more personal if u know what I mean?

Im not a big fan of order and conformity, I like chaos better! So the less realistic the better! Keep up the good work :)

Shurouq said...

Glad and flattered you liked my work

Enjoy your friday and merry christmas, everyone

Dear Eva,
