Thank you for taking some time out to stop by...to tell you something about myself, i am from Mumbai, India and sketching/ painting has been my passion since the time i was a little child. I don't how i got hooked on to this hobby as i do not remember anyone else in the family/ circle of friends being particularly passionate about drawing/ sketching, who i could have picked up the hobby from. Since i started it as a hobby, i am completely self-taught and am, today, comfortable with several media like oils, pastels, water-colour & pencil.
Since the time i was 9, i used to sketch pencil portraits...mostly of famous people, from magazines. As soon as i'd finish, i would go asking people to guess who it was and my day would be made if the person identified it right! In my early teens, i improvised on this skill with proper shading and depth. I also graduated to sketching portraits of any interesting face i would see while watching television. To date, portraits remain my favourite topic of interest. The thrill of capturing an expression full of life on canvas is what gives me a high! Another topic close to my heart is nature, so i dabble quite a bit in flora and fauna too! And i like to experiment with various media like oils, water colour, oil pastels and pencil sketching - not necessarily in that order!!
Enjoy my art work and do write in your feedback in my guestbook!!!
