Celebratory Peonies – A Fine Art Oil Painting by Navdeep Kular

Celebratory Peonies


After painting many small peony paintings, I was still not done with the peonies. As a result Celebratory Peonies came into being. I have put together peonies of many colours and sizes in this painting. The flowers and buds have been placed at varying angles. I love flowers popping out against a dark background in this painting. I have added many buds; closed and semi open in this painting along with the flowers which serve as eye magnets.

The Wedding Bouquet

Paintings immortalize moments, feelings, experiences and places. The emotional connect makes a particular painting special. It gives us the chance to relive the past innumerable times and provides joy forever.

The story behind this painting makes it a special one. The moment I saw picture of the wedding bouquet, I thought about painting it. The painting was supposed to be a surprise gift for the young couple.

The source for this painting was low resolution picture. Another challenge was limited time before travel for attending the Indian wedding. I somehow managed to paint the wedding bouquet. Oil paintings take their own sweet time to dry. It was moved around in  and out of the house and kept at various places to dry. The air conditioner, fresh air, sun; nothing seemed to hasten the process of drying.There was no question of getting it framed. How do we carry it along? It could not be rolled, as that would spoil the painting. It could not be taken in checked-in baggage as that would have smudged the painting.  It could be gifted later but thought the right time was then. Then we thought about carrying it in a box. A maroon box was prepared to carry the painting. An appropriate font was used in golden colour to name the painting on the box. The box was cushioned on the inside. The painting was kept in a U shape with transparent layer on top, so that it did not touch the lid. I wish I had taken a photo of the box for memory sake but we were too concerned about transporting it safely. The box was put in carry baggage, which was kept flat throughout the journey.

The bride was amazed when she opened the box. The look in her eyes was worth all the effort the entire family had put in to take the special painting for her.

Peach Roses in a Vase

Peach Roses in a Blue Vase is an original oil painting. Creative work is a source of immense joy and satisfaction.

The sharp front edge and softened rear edge of the wooden table provide depth to the painting. The shapes and colours visible on the vase intrigued me while painting. The reds, yellows and whites were used with blues for painting the vase. The colour palette started from titanium white and lemon yellow on one hand to crimson lake, ultramarine blue, cobalt blue and ivory black on the other side. The backdrop of this painting is unique. The flowers seem to be in symphony with the background.

The Magic of RYB


RYB denotes the three phases of electric current that was learnt in college. Nature combines primary colours into millions of hues to enchant us. From engineering drawing to free brush strokes with oil paints on canvas, it has been a long and eventful journey. Enjoying every moment of it.

Love is in the air

Love is in the Air

Red roses symbolise love. ‘Love is in the Air’ is an oil painting on canvas that depicts the intricacies of a loving relationship. The petals overlap and create a mystery. The nature’s beauty is captured by the formation of a heart at the centre of the flower.


Sun powers the universe. Sunflowers absorb this energy and exhibit the vibrancy of nature. ‘Sunflowers 1’ and ‘Sunflowers 2’ paintings are a salute to this mighty power of nature.
