“Surya Namaskar” (Sun Salutation) water colour series. Inspired by figurative abstract, vibrant colours, energy of yogasana (yoga poses) and spontaneous sketching during live yoga classes. 2003-2004. Many came tumbling out and were named “Yogaflows Art”. A few were painted during a quiet afternoon on the balcony of the Phoolchatty Ashram in Rishikesh, Northern India during a six week long yoga, meditation and pranayama retreat with the great yogi and teacher Clive Sheridan. In our group, was a talented artist yogini, who gave some of us excellent exercises, for example, the yoga pose she had just demonstrated, and reproducing it with our eyes closed, firstly with the right hand, then the left hand, then holding the pencil at the base to allow the lead tip to lightly caress the paper. On the originals of my Surya Namaskar series, you will note the letters “RH” denoting “right hand” or “LH” denoting “left hand”. Such an amazing experience and learning valuable artistic tools for the future. Thank you Tiffy.
