Hello to All

It is wonderful to be in touch again and get everyone's news. I'm based in London and hope to see you here sometime. I have just come back from a short holiday to Kolkata - had a great time re-visiting old places and also plenty of new malls/restaurants and hope to meet some of you on my next holiday! Take care and do keep on keeping in touch - Rahat

Art Rage 2.0

I stumbled across this application a few months ago. Art Rage is an drawing, painting software programme. It is super easy and great fun to use. And unlike a lot of other software it isn't disabled in any way. It does have more features in the paid version. I've been using the free (basic) version. This is my second attempt at painting. I havent yet mastered using the mouse with suitable dexterity as yet :D

Since Summer Holidays are round the corner, I thought that your kids might enjoy using this and/or that you might too. In any case, in todays digital world even art is made on a digital canvas so you'll might as well make an attempt to learn :D I had great fun making this painting in the morning and quite a lot of it was because i could just start and didnt have to go running around for a canvas, brushes, turpentine or even a rag cloth!

Hope you guys do try this out and enjoy it as much as I do. Honest, this one gets a 10 on 10 rating from me. And have you heard me rave about something like this?

One bit of exciting news is that for the first time I shall have a room to myself for my art!! I'm very excited about the "studio" and I'm hoping that it will get me to spend sometime everyday drawing, painting or just reading. Well, I can hope, cant I?
