Faith- Lady in a Temple


My 'faith' series continues...I had photographed this woman in Rishikesh sometime ago. What I added to this composition was the ghanta or the bell that hangs on the entrance of all Hindu Temples.

The size of the sketch is about 20"x28" I am experimenting with paper again, but with little luck! This paper was thick, but the texture was very rough and I could not put much details on her face.It could have been a diffrerent sketch if done on a different paper :)

  2. Really lovely sketch Arti! Fabulous expression. I didn't even know you had this blog! I'm glad you posted a link.

    And I have just recently fallen in love with bristol for my drawings. It's smooth enough to get great detail but also lets your more expressive marks shine through. Good paper is hard to come by isn't it?

  3. The drawing is wonderful, especially at the larger scale. The roughness of the paper isn’t noticeable in the photo reproduction…

  8. Thank you Tito, you are always one of the firsts to comment:)

    Thanks a lot, Carol.

    Welcome here, Crystal.I haven't found Bristol here yet, though I keep hearing about it.Good paper is hard to find, more so in Delhi ,where there are very few people doing professional sketching.

    Thanks Tony.You may not notice it in photo but the grain on the paper was quite a trouble!I am still looking for good paper.

  9. Thank you Joe and Michelle.I have recently started drawing large and it feels good:)

    D.D., I did it in three sessions of about two hours each. Nothing compared to the details in last drawing of the oldman :)

    Sherry I worked on her scarf as there was little else to do in the scene! :)

  10. It is awesome Arti!

    I understand your problems with papers...the tooth is very different in the local ones when compared to the limited imported ones.
