9th April 2023 Mr Nandakumar
I painted Dr Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician who introduced a system of therapeutics called homoeopathy.
I used a palette knife and an old ballpoint pen for this painting. We are all familiar with using a brush and paint but not a palette knife. One needs to be able to paint a picture with a palette knife. Here I used acrylic paint with a palette knife. I also did something unusual. I used a ballpoint pen. I broke the rules here😂😂😂.
Dr Hahnemann broke the traditional rules of practising medicine by introducing homoeopathy. Small doses of drugs are used to heal illnesses in that system. It is similar to a palette knife. You pick up a small amount of paint and try to create the image😉😉. You can read more about both topics online.
I dedicate this painting to his memory, as on April 10th 2023, it will be 268 years since he was born. Despite breaking the rules, the tradition still exists today🙏😊.
