Reigning in Harmony

Canvas Painting

I would like my readers to take the privilege to suggest an appropriate title for this oil on canvas painting. Giving justice to both the background and the subject silhouettes on a breezy day can be challenging. Who's in?

Oil on Canvas
 This intensely personal process enriches the viewer's experience of an artwork. Let your eyes play with the painting, slipping around corners, following the twirls, twists and turns, dipping in and out of the surface. 

I particularly chose silhouette to avoid details in the subject just to enhance the background effect.  

Under-paint/wood grain effect

Let your eyes dance around the piece. The consistent flow from one side of the painting to the other was planned with its precise strokes. I used painting knife, and a regular comb to get the wooden grainy effect.

Examine the varied colors, forms, materials, surface, and how they interact with each other. Take your time and simply let the painting "speak" to you.


Look at this art in the same way that we would listen to a symphony. When we listen to music, we don't try to hold on to the notes. Allow the eyes to wander over the painting the way the notes of a symphony wash over our soul. 

Free up yourself to be taken in by the painting. See what emotions, sensations or memories emerge. Allow your eyes relax and travel around the piece without expectation. Forgive me if the musical notes are not up to the mark.


A silhouette appears as a solid shape and its interior is featureless. It depicts the edge of an object in a linear form. 

"I have my mantra about silhouette, proportion, and fit. I believe that when they are in harmony and balance, you'll look great in anything."
