This post is not particularly on any topic given, it is one of my experience I want to share, I don’t know if it is relevant to this, but I want to share about a colour which I never liked before but somehow I started liking it after an incident.
I never liked pink as a colour , I don’t know why but somehow I feel in school friends used to say its a girl s colour , and I used to believe that, girls love pink I used to believe, that thinking about a colour was very deep that I was afraid of using pink in my works, if I used the pink colour I only used it in any girl dress or bags . somehow I had that thinking till I experienced pink.
One day I was just playing with my camera, I was on my terrace I saw one of my mother pink sari (dress) was there to dry. I went close to the sari and I have seen outside through that pink sari , I was covered by pink ,camera was there I clicked many pictures , did two videos , what a pretty colour, I realised later that the pink filter on my eye was essential to see something else which I was believing wasn’t true . a colour cannot be specified to any gender, my old thinking about colour was changed due to this . after that I started using pink, I still cannot wear pink dress I don’t know why but somehow I am not totally over of that thinking of” pink as a girls colour “ but I use pink in my works because first of all, I like pink now, and somehow pink reminds me of that old thinking about colour which my family told, friends told and I believed . I don’t think it is a big deal for anybody, but for me, this change in me was very important to me I learn from my experience. there are only some colours I like to use, pink is one of them now.The colour was not that important to me before, gradually there are some colours which are becoming important to me. These are some images of that day.
these are some of my works after I started using pink in my works. first one is in watercolour and pen on paper, second work is in mixed media.
