My son's work

My son likes drawing and we share the same teacher. :) So here are some of the wild beast drawings of my son. We had framed those while taking pictures, so one can see the glass and camera flash colliding each other :)

He generally likes to do only animals and only pencil shading and oil pastels. These samples are one with oil pastels.


More madhubani

After the mega project (as posted earlier) I told that I would do something which will finish in few classes. :) So , here comes another 'Ganesha' in madhubani style.

One difference is that I used acrylic(my craft paints) and for black outlining it is indian ink which comes in bottle.(unfortunately it is not water proof, but it has that rich black look).

Finally Mega project : Ananta shayanam

Finally I am done with the mega (like ekta kapoor mega serials) project 'Ananta shayanam' .This is another of my kerala mural.
Done on canvas cloth, with acrylic colors, outlined with black indian ink.

It took lot of efforts to get the intial design and make the fingers,toes,face right.
Then it involved tracing, outling with red paint. Then started the coloring in numberous coats of watery acrylic,. oooph, so finally done.

I will shortly update the post with the picture. Then I will get it framed :)

Sorry :) it took me so long time to take the picture and upload. Here it is ...

My other pencil shadings


Its been 2 months I havent attended drawing classes. These are some of pencil shading portraits I did before I went on vacation.

Traditional Rangoli outside ...


I tried to give a traditional touch by painting rangoli on the walls outside my house.
I chose two designs depending on the size of the wall area.

Here it is ..


Warli in my house

This is the warli painting on wall, near the stairs after all the remodelling. We had asked the painter to apply the terracotta base coat on the wall.
We had to do when my daughter is not around, as she would smudge or try her hands on :)

Needle work

My Needle is sad, that it is not getting its turn to enter in the blog.
So thought of putting few of needle's work. :)
I havent taken many pictures, so only posting the ones in my laptop.
