Crispy Sketching with Ballpoint Pen...

Woman in Towel
Sketching with Pen is very common. Ballpoint Pen offers more crisp and sharp lines than Ink Pen. Artists often use Pen in their sketching.

Though I started doing a rough sketch as a reference for my Painting, it took me on the finer path and helped me doing more detailed study.

Art Taking Part in BigHelp Annual Event - 2016...

BigHelp 2016 - Stage Decoration
A quick brainstorming of two Artists, one hour conference call with BigHelp committee, more than 10 hours of paper-cutting & preparations and 3 hours of stage decoration, all these efforts together had set this year's BigHelp Annual Event's Stage with a simple but elegant look. Within the limited time, resources and BigHelp's theme with added simplicity, Radha Jaldu and I took this task of Stage Decoration and we were pleasingly satisfied with our efforts & the outcome.

Though I have been helping with Art Contest for last few years, this year, it was a very satisfying experience for me, sitting in the audience and enjoying the cultural programs with my heart filled with the feeling of- our Art Taking Part in BigHelp Annual Event.

It was an amazing satisfaction for taking our Art become part of this year's BigHelp Fundraising Annual Event for the noble cause of helping needy students. Not just the stage decoration, I also took part in helping with Judging the Art contest, Rangoli contest and Coloring contest.

I am happy to take my Art part of this event for a noble cause.

Thanks to BigHelp President & Chairman Mr.Chand Pasha Shaik and Boston Chapter President Mrs.Sandhya Bommaraju for their trust on our creativity and making us part of this wonderful event.

Also, thanks to all those helpers who helped us on the stage arranging each and every bird and making sure that we were getting the shape that we visualized.

"Enjoy the satisfaction that comes from doing little things well."
