collecting colours over a cup of coffee...

If you are a lover of printed words, you would know how much of your time is taken by books alone. Then one day, sooner or later, you discover a huge vacuum within that you know next to nothing about other art forms. This blog is an attempt to fulfil one such lacunae in the art of painting. We intend to look up a random painting and upload it with a link here every day whilst having our daily cuppa coffee. In this way at least we hope to be better acquainted with colours, colourers and the schools than what we are now.If you wish to be a part, you know where to shout.

Striking. In a frightening way. If I were to hang this on my wall, I'd think that the eyes move when I'm not looking.

The technique for painting such pursuing eyes is called something. In fact I have seen one such somewhere but cant remember now.

This was actually found by Elle.

whatever the term is, krithiga is refrrng to eyes moving when she's 'not looking'.

Ah yes, I knew it was something that sounds like that.
