Ways to Improve Your Painting

Even the most experienced artists very often feel stuck at some point while working at the easel. You are short of inspiration, you can’t seem to make the painting look complete and at the same time avoid overworking it, you don’t know how to make it exceptional and let the viewer understand the idea you are trying to convey. It usually takes a long time before you see – this is it, this is exactly what you were seeking for. Whether you are into classical genres of abstract wall art, here are five ways to improve your painting without spending days and weeks on that.

1. Make it simple

To create a masterpiece, you don’t need to overuse paint, add too many color hues and fill your canvas with multiple depicted objects. Contemporary art doesn’t require too many elements to create a professional piece of art. Remember “Black Square” by Kazimir Malevich and its abstract simplicity. Too much information will never let the viewer concentrate on the primary message and take in the real subject of the painting.

2. Mixed media

Experimenting with art supplies will definitely give you a new insight. You can mix gouache with watercolors, for example. It will endow the art work with lots of different transparencies and make it look fresh and extraordinary. In the same way, you can use India ink and acrylics. Alternatively, try drawing with dry pastels around the edges of an already painted object. A painting with an integrated drawing will also look unusual and help you impress the viewer.

3. Rhythm

Creating a visual tempo on the canvas by repeating a certain pattern in different ways is called rhythm in art. It is one of the main principles you can follow to make the viewer’s eyes dance around the painting. It is believed that listening to music stimulates you to create rhythm. Who knows, you should try it!

4. Unfinished look

This may sound funny but there is no better way to impart magic in your painting than doing nothing to some areas of the artwork. Just leave them unfinished and make the viewer wonder what it is supposed to mean. A similar effect can be achieved if you let the paint drip, emphasizing that this piece is made by human hand, that there was a painting process before the final result.

5. Add contrast

Complementary colors will create the biggest degree of contrast and make the painting visually appealing. You should also include contrast in value for a more successful result. Not only does it add drama and life to the artwork but also helps to create an astonishing play of colors and incredible light effects. This kind of painting stimulates emotional response and evokes strong interest in the viewer. Try using contrast in your own works and you’ll be delighted with the result!

Problems which can face while Organizing a Corporate Event

So, you have been given the daunting task of arranging a corporate party. It isn’t easy and we understand it. If one doesn’t know the nitty-gritty of hosting a corporate event, unforeseeable problems can crop up last minute. Such problems, in fact, can give a great set back to all your plans.

However, the first thing which we would suggest is that just don’t freak out. Problems can occur in the most awesome events even. That day, I was discussing the issue with one of my friends who works in a MNC in Gurgaon. His last party arrangements failed badly and he was quite disappointed. On discussing the issues for long we realized that the key to success lies in knowing the problems which you can face beforehand so that you can be prepared for the worst case scenario.

Don’t worry; Not just the problems, we have solutions for the same as well. Here is the list of problems with solutions which we reached out after a long hot discussion.

A huge drop-out i.e. people fail to make it: If your luck has some grudges with you, this can be the worst thing happen to a party planner. You have made arrangements for the whole team and suddenly, flaky guests spoil it whole. A 10-20% drop out rate is normal but more than that becomes a faux pas.

What to-do: “No shows” are common in free events. However, if people spend something for attending they will definitely make it. So, it would be better if there is some charge for the tickets. Sending a jolly reminder can also set the mood of those few who were just feeling it hard to get up from their comfortable couches.

Ordered supplies getting late: This has a high possibility. Sometimes, it’s the food, some awards (if it’s an award function), some gifts or some office merchandise. Delay can be due to lack of supply, longer manufacturing hours, wrong address, or the wrongly placed order. Things can really get mess up in this case.

What to-do: Anticipate a timeframe for the delivery. Keep multiple options in hand so that if one fails, you can opt for the next. You can also discuss the issues beforehand with your supplier.

Failed technology: Oops, the electricity goes out right when the director stood up for the speech and you have no idea what to do. Or there can be any other technology issue with the video screen, speakers, projectors etc. Suddenly,,, become your best friends as you are not sure you will be welcomed in the same office again.

What to-do: To avoid any such situation, book a venue with up-to-date A/v technology. Most of the corporate party venues in Delhi NCR keep a team of specialist ready on hand to help in case of emergencies. You just need to coordinate with them at the time of booking.

Drinkers spoil: A corporate party is, of course, incomplete without drinks as people want to have a good time together. Often, mismanagement in the distribution of drinks can lead to over-drinking which can have unexpected results.

What to-do: As an intelligent party planner, you must make sure that there is an even distribution of drinks throughout the timeframe of the party. See that appropriate amount of drinks are served though. Alcohol should be served with food as it can avoid your attendees getting too drunk.

Booking corporate party venues in Delhi NCR: The biggest issue my friend faced was a congested venue in the middle of the city traffic. He could not get a nice one because he delayed the bookings. The traffic noise and overcrowded space made people suffocate there.

What to-do: I think that the venue issue can happen with anyone in Delhi. So, if you want to have desired corporate party venues in Delhi NCR, you should contact the vendors online or start looking for the options much before time. I would say better contact an online venue booking website and ask for the desirable option.

In a nutshell, a great and successful event requires eliminating potential problems by timely planning and proper organization.

Stage Fright:

After a long wait in the lobby, you are very thirsty, have not been to a restroom for a while, and are tired of the constant back biting and gossiping by the other actors called for the audition. So, finally, your turn arrives. You go to the stage, watch the casting director and the rest of her team, and you see them stare at your, fully expecting you to fumble and embarrass yourself. Then suddenly, as soon as you are given the signal to do your piece, you feel your muscles contracting, your breathing becomes harder and faster, you start feeling a squeeze in your tummy, you can almost feel your heart banging against your chest, and you are so nervous that you lose your capacity to think clearly as well as your current awareness of the situation. Welcome to Stage Fright. It happens to the best of us.

If it is of any consolation

You are not alone. Stage fright is something very common and every actor, young and old, famous and obscure has gone through this during his or her audition for a role.

3. Exercise well.

Go for an early morning jog or run, have a great workout in the gym, exercise those muscles. Keep your body busy, fit and warmed up.

This is most important. Warm up your vocals for at least 15 to 30 minutes. Practice deep breathing. It also helps if you know how to meditate. Have a quick jog on the spot for 3 to 4 minutes.

5. Prepare well.

You will probably be asked to say a monologue in your audition. Hopefully you will have prepared well at it long before the audition. Practice your monologue with friends and family and ask them to rate your performance. Perfect your delivery as much as possible.

6. it’s not the end of the world.

Every day, there are dozens of auditions for TV shows taking place in the city.
