Here comes my princess

Here is some serious work in pencil. Sketching.. more I am do more I like it. And at the same time realize that  there is long way to go. Two days of work, God, I never spent this much time on any painting or sketching.

Back to the Basics

Here again, wanted to get back to sketching to refresh my skills. Found some beautiful portraits at I did this boy with pencil first but could not get the colors out of my head, that's the spirit of this picture. Curiosity in those eyes took me back to all 'holi fun' I had in my childhood. So had this adventurous try...watercolor with pencil. I could have wasted my 3 days of work any moment, but I am so happy I tried..loved the effect.

This a structure in some garden of Shanghai, from my brother's travel diary. At some point I thought I can not proceed with the painting, I almost spoiled it. But overall liked it after finishing.

Apollo bandar, Mumbai

As I started looking for pictures for my Mumbai Theme, I realized I hardly know about my city. Few tourist places? thats all I know? My watercolor paintings brought me some new friends recently, couple fine arts photographers. And I started knowing and loving Mumbai through their lenses. This beautiful shot of sea near Apollo Bandar is my try to paint this
My hearty thanks to Mr. Abhijit Dharmadhikari.

My Sweetheart

And she asked me to draw one of her childhood picture. This was Ameyaa's first experience at sea. She was sleepy after afternoon nap, at the same time thrilled to see so much water in front. Her subtle smile and her half open eyes..I could not capture her properly in this not good at portraits yet, I admit :)
