Youth


This is Meghna, younger sister of my husband.Very vivacious, very charming, always ready to help! She is very fond of posing and loves being clicked....So last time she visited, I took this picture and promised her that I would paint her portrait very soon....I am going to give it to her on Diwali! I think it would make her happy!
I am a little worried about likeness factor..what's your take?
Water colors A3 ( 42cmX30cm) cold pressed 140 lb paper

  1. I do not find any alikeness problem with this.

    The forehead and lower cheek (to my right) lines can be a little smooth though.
