I always enjoy...

Beautiful Indian Woman Hairstyle
Whether it is a sketch, a drawing or a painting, I always enjoy doing hair in a Portrait. Whenever I do hair, I always recollect my college days of doing fine photograph-like hair in my drawings and paintings. Couple of Professional Artists and few of my college-friends used to compliment my works saying that I get hair done so nicely and so accurately.

Though I never did a Painting of just hair, in this Painting I challenged myself to see how I do it in a Watercolor Painting. I think, I could do it ;)

  1. You did a great job with it Giri...

  2. My very first Painting sold. My own sister Indira bought it. She wanted to be first buyer of my Painting if at all I sell any. I did put this for Sale in an Art Exhibition and she contacted my and bought it. I am glad it found it's new home.
