Wanna smoke??

Almost 3-4 months since I did any pencil sketchs...dont want to lose the touch and moreover a few pencil works need to be done before this year's vacations...for a few of my friends ;) so just to get the strokes right and the shading bit perfect am practicing a couple of warm-up random works...since i'd been painting all this while,a quick change wont be good,so decided to do a monochrome painting with a dash of pencil shading in it...

Next's going to be a pure pencil work...till my next blog post,Cheerz! ;)

Lady with the Mirror

My research on mural art continues.... I try and understand the fine details in each work,the different styles of brush strokes of each different artist,the mixing of shades,and the list goes on.Came across a couple of websites related to mural paintings on one of my random google search and in one of them I saw the original of this work....absolutely loved it!Till now all my mural works have been on A4 and A3 sheets....this time I wanted to do it BIG! and went 1 step furthur,and decided to do it on an A2 sheet[thats like half a normal chart size].The drawing and painting together took me almost 2 weeks and yup!pretty happy with the result... :)

All who saw the work said its come out really good and my determination to learn Mural painting professionally has increased twofold!Someday...I WILL! ;)
