QUILLED GANESHA.



      Lord Ganesha or Pilliayar is revered as the God of good beginnings and remover of obstacles. I have always been fascinated by the different symbolic ways in which Ganesha is represented , At one time I collected wedding cards with Ganesha in different styles from abstract to very elaborate designs. This picture is also from a wedding card , I liked it a lot and this has been with me for more than two years. The picture was originally almost monochromatic Akhil manipulated the colours before printing it out. Althought quilling over a picture has a lot of advantages , it is also very difficult since we have no choice of colours and to cover up the printed designs with quilling is quite challenging. Since the picture is from a wedding card it had glitter on it and it shows in some places. Still I have used lot of techniques and had to think a lot and it altogether  took me almost three whole days. I decided to quill the eyes first and to proceed only if it turned out fine.The trunk had lot of intricate patterns and after many trials I finally made tight coils with reducing sizes.


     Both my kids are at home studying for their exams and were quite drawn by this project, Always wanting to know if I am going to use the filler technique or graphic quilling. For some reason I could not photograph very well, the quilled mouse won't show well at all .


     Twelfth board exams for my elder son Abi has started from today. It will be fresh beginning for him soon when he enters college. I only pray he will be happy and successful in what ever choice he makes.

     Thanks for stopping by, Have a creative day.
