Stroke of Passion
Siddharth Varma believes that an artistic hand can create a flow which is not a feasible with any software. With illustration as his primary skill, he has been developing concepts and designs for a range of clients, which have received positive feedback. An avid trekker, nature lover and appreciator of the beauty of India’s uniqueness, his work begins with incorporating primary colours that gradually allows in more hues once the scheme is set.
Evolving with time, he hopes to retain the enthusiasm and excitement that once pushed him to sketch. The involuntary act of developing themes occurs within his mind as they spill out onto paper, where the innovation begins. With a will to face new challenges he believes as an artist, he can accomplish everything he desires.
Inspired by a casual conversation with a Sadhu on the Ganga Ghat, Nashik, this vibrant art piece showcases his connection to his lord while smoking a chillum.
A Rotring sketch of the Ganga Ghat that neighbours the artist’s home, a combination of stippling and fine lines makes this quite the holy illustration!
Captured as a photograph then converted into an illustration, this beeeater bird was spotted in Pune, while on his migratory route. The unique posture of the bird is showcased beautifully with the technique of splash merging.
I Think in Colour.
The sketch is a render done by him after years of wondering how the Kalaram Temple in Nasik would look if colours are used.
