DEEPTI NAVAL’S soaking in the monsoon
magic, only to reach for her paint brush in an instant, to capture the
mood on canvas.
Painting is one hobby actress Deepti Naval goes back to when she feels
like it. “I have painted since my school days, but for almost a
decade, it took a back seat because I was neck-deep in acting. In the
past decade I rediscovered this hobby,” she says. A nature enthusiast
and fond of trekking, Naval has traveled most of the foothills of the
Himalayas. When she is home, she translates some of the scenic beauties
on canvas. Oil on canvas is her medium, while landscape and figures form
her subjects. Sometime ago, she held an exhibition at the Jehangir Art
Gallery and will hold another, once “I accumulate some more works”.
Though no time is fixed for painting, Naval normally sits with her brushes
and colours when she is at home. And when she’s not acting.
