Sirjee...sir kehke, kyun khulle-aam mera mazaakh udaa rahen hain...

The exhibition went well, it was for two days only...I dont have much experience regarding exhibitions, but it seemed to be good...got good response. Special thanks to all Pencil jammers who visited the exhibition.

Thank you so much for enquiring...your wishes worked wonders for us!

Oh wow, this is totally humbling!


@ Prabal - thank you!

@ Kamal - You're too generous :)

@ Akhila - heyy! hardly as good as  your writing though :)

@ Aashish - thank you! I'm glad you like it.

@ Karen - Hii! Very good question! If you'll kindly take a look at the w.i.p. shot ... the marks were laid down on dry surface, and then a moistened brush passed over to homogenize/soften the look. I may have used a few strokes afterwards, but not much. Good idea, re: drawing on moist paper - it does need a heavier paper though. Thank you for your insightful observation :)

@ Donna - thank you for dropping by!

@ Soman - wow, Sir :P you're certainly very kind. Your eloquence humbles me. I do use blue, but not much of green, since I'm not primarily into landscapes. Although I've used green to enhance the flesh tones, as a compliment. The little green-blue I use on portraits is to illustrate receding planes, or turns of topography... nothing beyond what I could see. I hope your exhibition is running well? Thanks Soman :)

A GENERAL OVERALL COMMENT: I have always loved your strokes and the way you handle the highlights. There is just so much confidence and command in all your works that I need not mention them always, on each of your works. When I look at your works, these things are inbuilt in your paintings/drawings and the standards you have set are difficult to achieve. Your sense of anatomy is awesome...they are an inspiration.


ON THIS PARTICULAR DRAWING/PAINTING: In this the light bluish shadows are so subtle and wonderful...absolutely love it! 


You have a natural affinity towards orange-red-burnt umber & seinna hues and I see most of your paintings/portraits having a heavy influence of these colours...would love to see something loaded with greens and blues...it would be great learning for us!
