Acrylic Painting workshop by Anushka Nayak on September 5th

About the Artist:

I’m Anushka Nayak (@anushkanayakart), a finance grad turned fine-artist based in Mumbai. I’ve been a full-time artist for 3 years now, and have been teaching art since 2018. Over this period, I have experimented with several mediums including charcoal, soft pastels and oil paints, but Acrylic Paints are my favourite medium to work with. I love creating detailed miniature paintings and derive most of my artistic inspiration from the splendour nature and my travels around the world.
