Hello everyone, I am new to the forum. I first attended Vaishali's class at PTSA on clouds over the last past weeks. I loved it and it makes me feel that I need to go on with painting. I am a paper and book conservator specialising in Islamic and Indian manuscripts and paintings. If I have developped colour matching skills and retouching skills for my job, strangely enough, I have never really dvelved into painting and creation. I think it was too closed from my work and I wanted to do something else during my free time. Now, with the age, I am going back to it !
Here is my modest production and interpretation of the folio depicting Mi'raj of prophet Muhammad. Both cartouches only need a nastal'iq calligraphy but I don't feel confident myself to do it ! It was also my first attempt to draw ruled lines...
Happy to meet and share with you all !
