For You, Sherry!

Its a portrait of Sherry, a fellow blogger and a dear friend :)
The reference pictures that she sent didn't reveal much of her character, each one of them being different- so I relied on my instinct and painted her as I perceived her!
I do hope you like it, and you recognise yourself in this portrait, Sherry! Enjoy :)

Midnight Rose

Here I have been trying to create an artwork combining both- the abstract and the realistic approach...(without much success, it seems!) I have also used some negative painting here.
The experiment with darks still continues...I am posting it here even if I am not happy about it - keeps life from getting boring :)

The Intense Gaze

I have been working on this sketch during past few days. I guess total time involved was around 10-12 hours.

This lady  happens to be a devotee who was busy reading her holy book at the 'Ganga Ghaat'( At the shores of the Ganges) in Rishikesh.She looked up when my husband clicked her picture but didn't mind much! Her gaze was intense and deep, so I was fascinated by her face.
Hope you enjoy this.
