Pratima Roy is based in Gurgaon, India. She specializes in oil painting portraits and is inspired by the concept of realism. A simple, kind and passionate woman whose qualities always shine through her art.
Although she started later than most with her art journey, she happily succumbed to the wonders of expressing herself through her art. And with the support of her husband and family, she embarked on to become an amateur artist.
Her dreams of being a recognized painter were only realized after she went to Saudi Arabia and her painting was for the first time selected for an exhibition.
But she stopped painting after she came back to India, nonetheless, she started her art journey again after the death of her beloved husband.
Pratima believes in letting her imagination and inner emotions out through her art and doesn’t particularly care for imitating other works. Painting is something that brings her freedom and taking it as a job or a chore is something she does not want for herself. Once, the emotion is let out in a painting then imitating the same emotions into her own painting is not possible for her. Each painting carries the emotions of the painter and she won’t try to copy the emotions of someone else. She will stay too true to her own emotions and paint them.
Pratima Roy usually uses oil paints to do her painting. She uses the three famous techniques of oil painting: Chiaroscuro, Scumbling, and Alla Prima.
