Shades Of Your Love by Kalpana Soanes

It may be blue Monday today, but we have our eyes on Valentine’s Day already! With less than a month to get ready, here, at Art2Arts, we have a great selection of artworks that can be offered as gifts to a loved one in your life. It doesn’t have to be a spouse or a partner, but a friend, a parent, a sibling, or a grandparent. “Shades of Your Love” by Kalpana Soanes is our first ‘Artwork of the Week’ for 2022. With its highly decorative texture and the modern combination of red and gold, this could be a great addition to any interior. It is warm, modern, and inviting, the perfect conversation starter in your home. Tempted?

Where did the inspiration come from for this piece?

There are many different types of love in our hearts. We all see love in people and are sometimes fortunate enough to experience it. Not all love is romantic love. Love is beautiful in all its facets and shades. So, for me “Shades Of Your Love” is a desire to express that.

What is the creative process when creating your vibrant abstract art?

I’d have an idea of which colour I want to use and whether I want to paint an abstract or a landscape.  That’s about it.  I approach a canvas with no particular plan.  So, my work is instinctive and spontaneous.  It is my mood on canvas.  Working on the canvas for several sessions, I create texture and add colour.  It’s hard to explain how I know when it’s finished, it just happens.


How long would this work have taken you?

It’s difficult to say because I don’t count time and I usually work on many paintings at the same time.  I guess it would be around four weeks, working a few sessions each week, allowing enough drying time in between.
