In this post, I will show you how I created a large painting of Partha Sarathi (Krishna and Arjuna on the Battlefield) from beginning to end.
My canvas was primed with an ocher yellow layer before starting on the canvas.
Beforehand, numerous sketches took place.

Original sketch for Partha Sarathi 3

Here are a few samples of my individual sketches. I actually create a sketch for each figures separately.

Those sketches are just a few examples.

Once I finished with many sketches, I transferred the main sketch to the canvas and started with the sky, and the underpainting.





At this point, colors are glazed on top. This process takes long hours in front of the canvas, painting.

There are many steps to finishing a painting. You can compare some of those stages to those earlier steps.
This was my third version of this painting. Two of them found a home.

Painting is a meditation.
The goal of life is rapture. Art is the way we experience it.

You can buy all kinds of prints of this painting: canvas prints, framed prints, art prints, metal prints, wood prints, and more.
