Indian Woman Hair Style...

Indian Woman - Hair Style
Looking at some of my Paintings, one of my Artist-friends made a comment- "Giri, you always show Indian woman looking so happy & beautiful in your Paintings". One of the new themes that I thought I would do a series of Paintings this year was - Indian Woman.

I love painting Portraits and especially the hair. It's bit hard doing hair in watercolor paintings. This is my second painting of this kind. My first one can be seen here.

I also did sketch as part of doing a value study for this Painting. Here is the sketch.

Happy painting and Keep practicing!
