Sarika Alvekar

Artist Statement

From past few years I have immersed myself in the study of portraiture only. Mostly I love drawing and painting my twin boys and catching the glimpses of their character, emotions in it. The liveliness of oil paintings, vibrancy of pastel colors and delicateness of charcoal fascinates me. While working in all these mediums I like to convey the drama created by natural light in simple settings and how it illuminates their face and make them other worldly. The process of capturing those little nuances of colors, values and shapes captivates me throughout the painting process.
