When Priya, the artist came to Australia the first thing she did was to visit an art supply store. She grabbed all the painting material and came back home to start to learn painting. After few google search attempts she found few tutorials on youtube and since then she is tunned to the process of painting.
The first video she saw was the TV show "Colour in your life" by Graeme Stevenson and the artist who was demonstrating was Katherine Castle, a world renowned Aussie Wildlife artist. That show helped her practice her painting skills over the next 8 years and guess what??? the time came when she was offered to be on the same show.
All the years of practice and patience culminated into this painting as this painting was produced on the show itself. Graeme Steveson - the founder of the show and a great artist himself spread the gold dust of love and knowledge all across the world and this painting is a tribute to the great teacher and a guide.
The following quote expresses the artist's feelings towards Graeme the great Aussie art educator.
“Every plant, tree, and animal is a blessing and every person has a purpose for living. Courage, curiosity, and generosity produce noble spirits. Enduring life honorably results in wisdom. Knowledge passed down from one generation to the next along with humankind's tradition of performing charitable and self-sacrificing deeds creates principled legacies for future generations to emulate.”
― Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls
