“ WHEN I WAS IN SHIMLA ”
|My First Oil Pinting In form of Landscape of Shimla|
In our Summer holiday vacation I were went to hill station for some refreshment of mind with my family . That holiday vacation was gave me much more for my live ART study or observation . Hill station is very perfect for a creative person because there environment is very peaceful and natural and art want it very first to Artist and this kind of environment is giving inspiration for creativity to a creative person. So that Hill station visit was very meaning full for myself Art Study.
We went to Shimla by mini train from Station Kalka to Shimla .i were noticed lots of caves and that’s rail track was very challenging action by western developer .really they were created a wonder of rail track on hill station . that was grate . I saw lots of landscape with different kind of views and that’s green environment or cold air always pulling to your vision in peace and love about nature.
There We were Stayed in Shimla for three days and in three days I were walked on street of Shimla with My camera , that was still roll film camera cosina. I were used 400 ISO film roll for my photography work , kind your information in our home we have a big briefcase of photography album . when you will start to visit then you passed your 4 hour without any brake . we have noticed many time when our family relatives were visited that albums ..it mean I have done lots of work in photography from my Schooling time .
But That year I was not busy in only Photography there I were observing to nature and that’s different kind of visuals .that was live capturing work from my eyes and that’s visual was registered directly in my memory data of Mind . you can say that was my art work as a visual artist . I was in foundation year of B.F.A Painting class. in that tour I were felt all time shortage of time . because my family were lived busy in side seen visit and myself was busy in study of landscape of that natural city Shimla . That Short time of our tour was a live test of my art observation or a hard exercise about my art Observation study.
In that case of limited time I were used my creative mind and silently I were shoot some visuals of Shimla and that’s landscape , I were not told to my family for this extra art work because we have there very limited film roll storage so without inform to family I were shoot some landscape and I did cut myself picture from our family photography project . because I were converted my pictures roll in landscape photography work .That was my management work for my art or family tour.
In that tour one day we were went to our national helipade of Shimla that is on highest height . That Helipade is a national Helipade of our nation INDIA .there my family was busy in visit to that helipade and that’s height but I was busy there in visit or observe to natural landscape from that highest point of Shimla . there I were shoot some visuals that visual was visualizing in a one color tone that was sky blue . In that time I have been cleared my Tow year NCC Air Wing in schooling time and that helipade was in under of Our national air wing force so I were felt there very confident in myself . I were feeling its my place because I was in Air Wing NCC. Ha
There I were shoot some pictures and I did shoot two picture from a same place for landscape I did wanted to covered and captured to that wide angle in a one picture frame but that was not coming in a one frame and there I were not had any stand or etc. so I were shoot two picture frame from a one point and captured to that wide landscape with myself consciousness or on risk . That was my live practical photography test .
After Three day hill station stay or seven days holiday tour , we were came back at home and I were got myself busy in printing for that photography work of our tour . here In Bikaner Archana Color Lab was gave me good result by photo prints.
The Real Story is start to here ….
|This kind of visual i were captured from Helipade of Shimla , |
this picture from Google Image for your visit as a example .
When I got fine print from photo lab I saw first my landscape photography result and I felt very happy when I saw to that wide landscape photo of Shimla helipade , when I were joined to that two pictures . then I got a perfect wide landscape view . that was my first picture capturing success . I were came in confidence about my art study or for photography , I did noticed how to I can shoot two picture for a one frame without any vibration or move . I were thought how to I could done it ? Then I were found Answer from myself . I were in Air Wing NCC. So I was handled to camera Like Gun because in Air Wing NCC I was in top shooter rank . and In Shimla that platform of my Photography was helipade of Air wing force so it was plus point for my confidential art photography , I were shoot photograph just like a gun man of Air wing Force on that helipade of Shimla . when I am shooting photograph in that motion a gun man come in myself naturally for perfect shoot , because In Army they are giving very limited bullets to gun man for perfect target and they want to gun man perfect result . In Air Wing NCC I were completed perfectly gun shooting test that shooting knowledge and practice is giving me confidence when I handle to Photography camera and that’s result I am getting perfect visuals by my picture capturing work . any way .
After one week of our tour I were went to market and I did buy first time oil color that was student oil color of Camlin LTD.PVT. and I were buy first time a canvas in size 12 X 15 inches .Kind your information that canvas also product of Camlin PVT. LTD. There to my oil painting journey was started .
I were draw that wide landscape on canvas by charcoal and then started painting in oil color. It was my live practical for oil color Painting study , in our art education I were read oil color process is very negative its start to dark and its get complete to light color . so I did followed to Academic rule for oil color painting . first I painted dark blue And then light blue or more light blue and on last stage light sky blue color .in depth of that landscape I saw sky and land was mixed by fog environment so I did painted that same look because that look was in my memory image with same color and shads . over all in two days I were painted that wide landscape of Shimla on canvas through oil color .
Today that painting is exhibit in my studio wall . this painting was gave me lots of process of art Study by many kind of art exercise for perfection of that landscape . in that painting process I were done many exercises first I were observed . second still photography without Vibration , transformation of photograph on canvas by drawing and in final stage oil color painting to that landscape observation with that’s right impression or look .
That landscape painting was a complete art journey for me and in that journey I was alone with my limited vision or limited time of our holiday tour . but my creative inner sound was supported to me then I could registered that’s first impression of Shimla In my very first oil painting . because that landscape impression was impressed or inspired to me for that registration in form of visual art . so I did converted that Natural view in art form by my art exercise.
Today that Art Form I mean landscape painting is on my studio wall and here in studio I can visualize that natural impression of Shimla every day . when I visit to that landscape oil painting or I am remember to that natural landscape view , when I was in Shimla .
