This fortnight’s theme is ‘trees’. I still have to get the hang of drawing leaves especially on big trees so i decided to draw trees without leaves! Ofcourse it is like taking the easy route and not taking up a challenge which could improve my drawing skills but i intend doing another one after i have figured out the technique of doing it. I personally think it’s easier to paint rather than draw a tree with leaves and i think my friend Meg might agree with me as she does both! So what do you think?

This week’s theme is ‘clouds’. I have still not got the hang of drawing clouds and it seems tricky to get the right texture. Anyway I tried to do a decent job of it (I hope!).

‘Out like a lamb’ is this fortnight’s theme and I think this man fits it perfectly; he wanted to conquer the world but how – by killing millions of jews by torture, starvation and gassing in concentration camps where they were helpless prisoners – only to commit a cowardly act of suicide when faced with defeat. A man who committed genocide ruthlessly could not face up to its consequences. In like a lion but out like a lamb!

The theme is ‘spring’ this fortnight. In my country, there are a number of festivals occuring in the spring season, but the festival of colors called Holi heralds the start of the season very colorfully. People come out to the streets and play holi with their friends and acquaintances by splashing colored water on each other with joyous abandon. The previous night, a campfire is lit and women offer puja to the fire signifying triumph of good over evil, and burning all negative emotions like hate, jealousy and greed in the fire to start life afresh.

So here is holi for you. Hope you like it!

This week’s challenge is ‘in like a king’. It was a bit difficult but finally I chose the macedonian warrior/commander Alexander the Great who, in his time, was known to have always won his battles and died very young, at age 32, of possibly poisoning. He had invaded my country India too. As the saying goes, ” He came, He saw, He conquered ” just like a lion!

This fortnight’s theme is ‘romance’, which threw up a lot of possibilities in terms of sketching but mostly difficult ones.

After a bit of search i hit upon this image and thought”what could be more romantic than a proposal?”

So here it is.

This week’s theme is winter sports. Actually i did two sketches, the other one being a woman skater on an ice rink but spoiled it by coloring badly. So i am posting this one, for your view and comments.
