I'm so happy I can finally show my painting from being a wild card entry for Sky's Landscape Artist of the Year 2017! I have never painted to this scale outdoors before, but I have to say, I'm pleased it turned out well, considering I had 4 hours to paint, even with sunburn and a dead butt from sitting on a donkey. I originally had planned to complete this painting in my own time (as I consider it to be 60% complete), but I decided that I should be proud of what I achieved in the time limit. I wouldn't have been able to compete if it wasn't for my amazing family and husband who supported me. Here is to pushing the limit! #landscapeartistoftheyear2017 #landscapepainting #skyarts #tesside #watercolor #watercolour #zillzeba #artisthemotive #pushittothelimit #art #competition #artisforlife

Someway, baby, it's part of me, apart from me
You're laying waste to Halloween
You fucked it friend, it's on its head, it struck the street
You're in Milwaukee, off your feet. 
And at once I knew I was not magnificent
Strayed above the highway aisle
Jagged vacance, thick with ice
And I could see for miles, miles, miles 🎼 Bon Iver - Holocene #conceptart #boniver #watercolour #sketchbook #watercolorpainting #windsorandnewton #art #artisthemotive #zillzeba #moleskine #moleskinesketchbook #romance #artnouveau #gustavklimtinspired

A throwback to when inspiration struck in Bali, watching all the locals pray for their religious festivities. Never have I seen a mosque and church side by side to each other and Hindu's praying to their deities walking through the streets. Why can't all counties be like this? Displaying such an understanding and empathy towards each other, bearing no ill will to conflicting views. Together, not divided! #watercolour #illustration #togethernotdivided #bali #ubud #moleskine #moleskinesketchbook #windsorandnewton #zillzeba

'No religion is higher than humanity' Abdul Sattar Edhi 1928-2016. The link for my short comic on Edhi's life is in the description section. A lot can be learnt from this wonderful man, we should all take a leaf out of his book. Rest in Peace. #edhifoundation #edhisahab #windsorandnewton #watercolour #inspiration #oneyearanniversary #restinpeace #whatislifewithoutart #pakistan #comicart #indiecomic #art
When you think you haven't changed that much in 6 years and realise... hmm, I guess I have. It's been a slow year for creating a lot of new art work, but I'm ready to get back on it and focus. But every now and then, it's nice to look back and realise that you have grown... but I have a looong way to go. And that ladies and gentlemen, is the BEST PART! #improvement #beforeandafter #6years #illustration #thenandnow #blackandwhite #pencilart #photorealistic #zillzeba #artistlife #toolsofthetrade #tonimahfud #whatislifewithoutart #fabercastell #derwent #cretacolor #pencilsacademy

Coffee in a treehouse in the jungle. This should be my life on a daily basis. #ubudbali #ubud #bali #ubudriceterraces #coffeeobsession #treehouse #coffeebreak #indonesia
I fled Him, down the nights and down the days;
I fled Him, down the arches of the years;
I fled Him, down the labyrinth ways
Of my own mind; and in the midst of tears
I hid from Him, and under running laughter.
Up vistaed slopes I sped
And shot, precipitated 
Adown Titanic glooms of chasmed fears,
From those strong feet that followed, followed after

The Hound of Heaven 
A Poem by Francis Thompson (1859-1907)

A few months ago I entered myself into a competition in which applicants needed to create and illustrate a short story. I cast my memory back to any recent paintings I had created to rediscover any emotional connection I had made in the last year to a painting. And then it suddenly clicked, why make a sub par story from my imagination when I could visually depict the life in someone I admire from the bottom of my heart. I did not win this competition, but if I can guide people to turn their attention to this great man and apply into your own practice, the concept of 'practice what you preach' then I will consider this comic to be a success. I won't go too much into any preachy ethos but I will show a quote that Edhi's mother told him in his youth that became the pillar to his humanitarian mission. 'You are the most insignificant of all creatures, but you can become the most significant of you contribute towards God's people.' I hope that you will also start the coming year to aid others and be kind to the world around you, regardless your faith, background, gender, etc, let's  forget our differences be united as one race, the human race. P.s. the link to my comic is on my website, which is in my description. #humanity #onerace #edhifoundation #personalgoals #inspiration #humanitarian #illustration #painting #watercolor #winsorandnewton #fabercastell  #sakurapigma #comicart #2016 #comicbookartist #artisthemotive #pakistan #edhi

To coincide with the reboot of my website, I have written a piece on my website in response to the Kubrick exhibit I recently attended at the Somerset House. It's not a review nor is it a blog post 🙄 it's just a short piece on my thoughts of the exhibit as a whole. #stanleykubrickexhibition #somersethouse

When in silks you came and dazzled
Me with the beauty of your Spring,
You brought a flower to bloom - 
Love within my being.

You lived with me, breath of my breath,
Being in my being, nor left my side;
But now the wheel of Time has turned
And you are gone - no joys abide. 
You pressed your lips upon my lips,
Your heart upon my beating heart,
And I have no wish to fall in love again,
For they who sold Love's remedy
Have shut shop and I seek in vain.

My life now gives no ray of light,
I bring no solace to heart or eye;
Out of dust to dust again,
Of no use to anyone am I. -  William Dalrymple - The Last Mughal
