I saw this woman in Rishikesh on my last trip to India earlier this year.She was one among many who flock the banks of river Ganga, seeking peace and hoping to find their spiritual identity in their twilight years.I always find inspiration in Rishikesh, among simple and free spirited people.
The portrait was done using layers of pastel pencil,
Title: Woman in Lemon Shawl
Size : 48x34
Medium: Pastel pencil on Pastel Mat

Horses have beautiful eyes to match their well constructed faces.This one has been done in my current favorite palette- purple grays, which consists of French Ultamarine Blue, Shadow violet , Moonglow (both by DS) and permanent magenta.Just a hint of burnt orange in some areas for some warmth.
Hi All. I am sure many of you have been planning to do your art exhibition, but just don't know where to start. I have written a blog post on How to Organize your Art Exhibition Part 1 - Preparation. I hope it will help. I'll be publishing the second part soon which will focus on the opening day and rest of the exhibition days.
