Chai in July

Artist: Shivani Jadon, Mumbai, India

ARTIST STATEMENT: Mumbai is known for its rains in the month of July. This year due to the lockdown, I had a chance to enjoy the rains at home with my favourite beverage, ‘chai’. With some inspiration from the net, I decided to paint this Gouache illustration. The colour palette used is primarily to depict an evening set up.

MEDIA: Gouache

SURFACE: Nova Series – Heavyweight – 150 gsm – Beige – Medium Grain Finish

ABOUT THE ARTIST: The process of painting is a therapy session for me. I have been pursuing painting since childhood. As an avid traveller, I like visiting places which have unique landscapes and different cultures. Currently, I am working on a project depicting 100 days of India where I am recreating 100 paintings from 100 different places I have been to in India. My Instagram page (@shivanimakes) is a journey of patience, improvement and self-love.
