GUEST DOODLEWASH: A Wall of Wonders From India

Doodlewash and painting by Sarang Khanna of peacockHi! My name is Sarang Khanna and I’m from a small but ancient historical town called Ayodhya in India. (Follow me on Facebook and visit my blog!) I am 20 years old. I started drawing at the age of four and as far as I can remember, it was the first activity I ever started loving so much! My second love was computers.

So, currently, I am studying Computer Science in Punjab ,India and people call me a hardcore geek (in fact, I am writing this article on an IDE – something developers use to write programs! Hehe.)

I am a hobby artist and use many a medium to draw and paint, but I have a special corner for watercolor in my heart. I work on varied topics – fantasy animals, Hindu Gods, mythical deities, abstract designs and so on. I take inspiration from my surroundings like book covers, designs on clothes, pictures I see online.

Although these days I am so busy in engineering life that there is hardly any spare time for anything else, I still love to steal moments for art, because I think it is the lifeline which keeps my soul alive.

Six years ago, I started my blog Wall of Wonders and it gave a new boost to my passion. Every time I made something new, I posted it online and saw people are liking it. And every time people liked it, it gave me the zeal to draw more. So if people like my art, I think it is made better only because of them.

    Wow! How lovely! The colours! How vibrant! Your lines, too!

    Sarang, no matter how much you may get caught up in life and computers and coding – please – never ever neglect your artistic side.

    • Sarang Khanna 6 months ago

      Thanks for giving the confidence… We coders really need it from time to time 😀

      • babybluesnowflake 6 months ago

        A pleasure, Sarang. I know how it is! And I know there is so much more to a life’s potential than just code/coding! Not that coding is not fun or creative to a certain degree (and frustrating at times, too). But, art is such a great balance to it. 🙂

      • Sarang Khanna 5 months ago

        I agree. That’s why I like to merge art into coding and software projects also 🙂
