Hi Waheed. You are going through a metamorphosis, aren't you?
This technique looks fast. Monet like, via Nassir. :) Has an impressionistic feel, but not like you are out on location painting. More of an impression in the studio. Your pictures are getting quite active and complex.And the last 2 (this and the docks one) are almost bordering on abstraction. Very interesting to watch.

You're still maintaining a high key palette. Overall the pictures have less of a compositional hierarchy, as you have painted them. Thus to me the paintings are taking on a life as a canvas and color. Still very recognizable as what you are intending to paint. I may be completely off base, but I would say that your inner liberated artist is asserting itself over the artist for hire. I know that when I was a hired artist, I had all kinds of ideas artistically that I could not act upon. And it did produce in me some artistic challenges to keep that side mute.

I have no idea the why and wherefore of this painting, but if I were to look at it as a psychological study of the artist, I would say that on the surface in your world it's very hustle-bustle and chaotic, 1001 colors being demanded (ie. commercial demands), and under the surface there is gold (the coy fish?) living an entirely different life of richness and harmony, more limited palette. But it's hard to see, where one can only get glimpses through the chaos of the other world. I seem to see your older paintings down there, those little still life, chiaroscuro jewels you painted of coffee service and woven fabrics being lit by a beam of light, much as a beam of light might come into a pond through the lily pads when looking from under the surface. And those getting shoved off into a corner by the rest, beautiful as it can be on the surface in that milieu. There need be limits lest it overwhelm the rest.

But that's my own take on it in a way as well. . . something to which I can personally relate. So you may have had none of that going on. Hahaha. But I do. :D

Painting can be an adventure, no?

Nice work. :):):):):)

I see than any subject can be a blessed pretext for You to create magical marvels of lights, colors and brushstrokes which seem to change a clearly recognisable reality into its heavenly and supernatural version, into its purest essence ....

ScottF, mannafig, damasocl, Alexandra, gzairborne, Pamelina Weena, kenmo, D Akey and Caesar, thank u very much..:).

dear D Akey, that was good and very interesting and as i always say i really like the way u analyze and give words to your thoughts and they way u see. this was a good read and i appreciate the observation.
to be honest, i have always painted what i feel like from inside, i follow my mood and not the commercial needs around me. cause i only share my personal work that i do for my own self. though i do agree that my professional work and commercialism does influence at time, but i manage to keep a distance. for instance, the port paintings that ive done, are all painted after i got involved in the project im currently working for at work. as the project site is just across and so close to the port (karachi port) that whenever i visit the place i feel like painting it. my first visit there at the evening/night time, made me paint my first port painting when i returned home..:), but, i kept my style through out and it was hugely different from any commercial look that they do. im fortunate, that even the loosely handled, painterly paintings that i do, are used for the project in some way or the other, as the bosses like them and they do use them.
i like the "hired artist" thing that uve said. its very true in most of the cases and for me too, somewhere. esp when i work for animation/movie studios. we do have to follow certain things at time, but even then its a blessing that most of my own ideas and concepts and mood, that i personally like and make are taken and followed.
about my painting with varied treatments, its just that i do love them to be peaceful/romantic at time and very moving at other moments. may be its because of whats going on inside me that i dont recognize clearly and it comes out through the work. i dont plan, i just follow the heart..:).

i do hope that i understood your points that you have and my reply does make things clear to some extent. i tried, cause its hard for me to give words to things that come from the heart. some of them cant be described at all..:).

D Akey, youve made me think and thats beautiful, thank you for stopping by, for always watching my work and like it. its great to have you around. i hope things are fine as i dont see much as much these days. be well mate..:).

Caesar, dear mate, thank you, i like that..:).

thanks again everyone. cheers.

Your painting shimmers, shines and is totally beautiful. I keep looking and seeing more and more, this is one painting that I would happily hang on my wall. Love it, well done again Waheed for such stunning work:)

04-14-2011, 03:48 AM
Wow! What a beautifull colours. I can watch this for an hour and still see new things. Very pretty :)

04-14-2011, 03:54 AM
Very lovely - I like the glassy appearance of the water! :D

04-14-2011, 06:50 AM
Awesome! It's always a pleasure to see your painting :):):)

04-14-2011, 07:17 AM
I love this. This kind of painting lights up any room and you will never get bored of it because you keep seeing different and new things the longer you look at it. And if you look quickly, it is a very beautifull pond !
If you would hang this in my doctors waitingroom where I have to wait two hours, I would not mind waiting that long.....I can stare at it and let myself be taken to another dimension....and relax.....;)

Waheed - nice Koi pond impression. I like the balance of realism ( lily pads and fish ) to the impressionist light and color on the water. Easy to get mesmerized by the shimmering effect of lights and darks.:):):):):)

04-14-2011, 04:11 PM
A beautiful pond just teaming with life :)
