4th – 14th Aug’14: Pradarshak presents Vidyarthi Vishesh Phase III - Drawings & Still Life by Student Artists.

Still life paintings are simply magical. The artist shows us his point of view in such a creative manner that it leaves the audience imagining how the real object would be. The student artists’ approach is fresh – a novel way of looking at the ordinary object and their works of art then reflect that idea in paint, ink, pastels or oil colour on either paper or canvas.

The composition speaks of a narrative; texture adds to the realism and layering of the colour palette brings the painting alive in entirety.

Similarly Drawings are a strong medium of communication that the artists use to translate their thoughts, ideas into visual expression. Their tools are similar to that for paintings - graphite pencils, pen and ink, inked brushes, wax colour pencils, crayons, charcoal, chalk, pastels…

Yet the rendition is distinct. There are various methods – stippling, line drawing, shading, etc that are employed to depict the depth and tone of the visual. Many a time a monochromatic drawing is more potent than the most colourful painting. Such is the impact of the artistic vision in black and white!

Students exhibiting their drawing skills are: Prathamesh Khanvilkar, Kamalesh Salaskar, Abhijeet Ghodvinde and Yashas Jayanti among others.
