acrylic painting on wooden panel
size: 8x12 inches

It was a pleasure to lift the brush in my hands and apply the strokes of paint after a long break of almost 6 months. Naturally I started with Lord Ganesha. I painted this from a real still- life setting of a wooden sculpture of Lord Ganesha which has resulted in a 3D effect in the painting.

wonderful it looks like a bronze idol cannot believe that it is a painting

Hi Anandhi.

I did visualize the wooden sculpture as a 'Panchaloha Idol'( made of a mixture of 5 metals). Hence the metallic look. Somehow what I perceive in my mind is what shapes into a painting.

In fact the sculpture is a 'Panchamukhi' Vinayaka. But I decided to paint a regular idol.

Thanks for the keen observation and comment. Appreciate it.
