An interview with Renu . . .

Kim: May I ask why you selected watercolors as your second medium; digital art being your first.

Renu: I first started with charcoal, then moved to digital, now to watercolor.

Kim: Most people only know you for your digital work and book covers.


Renu: I am trying to learn and get better at watercolors. They are great medium for expression as they are quick to work with and dry fast. Also, I love the painterly, very traditional, kind of raw unrefined look they have.

Kim: When you are drawing do you find you are more relaxed versus digital?

Renu: Yes, way more, there is something very therapeutic about getting your hands dirty and being able to feel the texture of everything, and a certain permanence with traditional media.

Kim: I have noticed all your sketches in your gallery are very expressive.

Renu: Yes, I do have a bit of dependency on reference due to the lack of skills in drawing from the head, but it is usually a lot more emotional and personal.

Kim: Do you have any tips or advice for aspiring artists?

Renu: Art is probably one of the best things that happens to a person’s soul if he is honest in it. Don’t get impatient or focus your energy on getting very good very soon. Just enjoy the process of creation.
