After Maya, here comes the Aaya.:)   [old lady]

This reminds me of people living in remote villages in India. During peak summer, people have to really travel long distances to get some potable water. That said, it feels really good to finish this sketch after  2years.

I used 3B and 6B pencils for this sketch.

Maya

When I searched on the word “Maya”, I was really surprised that it was probably one word which has multiple meanings across different places and religions. According to Hindu mythology, it is another name of goddess Lakshmi and it means “illusion”. It is the failure of perceiving things the way they are and seeing them superficially thereby not getting a picture in totality. I think the process of understanding the difference between them is enlightenment. The idea of this sketch is that the external beauty is what draws ones quick attention but its only an illusion, subject to change with time.

I am back, after a brief hiatus. Here is an Indian dancer captured in motion. Focus is on the rendering style and without much attention to detail.

A young ,happy indian wife.

I began to think,in India,  just going by the type of attire n look, it is quite possible to say where the person is coming from.  In the same pic, if the pallu (not shown here, its on the other side of the shoulder) is on the right, and also covering the head, its a north indian (marathi, gujurati, ..). If on the left, its south indian. A salwar khameez, then its punjabi. A bigger bindi, could be bengali. No Bindi, could be christian or muslim.  With sari going in between legs, could be telugu or any coastal people.  Wow thats a whole lot of people we are talking about.

I guess now, a general statement could not be said. All are crossing borders and reserving their traditional clothes only for marriages and other festive occasions.

The Result

There is nothing much write about this one. The lyrics of a tamil song from ‘Kadalar dhinam’ best describes the sketch.


Kadallenum thervu ezhuthi, kaathirundha maaanavi naan

Unn yennam ennum yetil, naan yennai paartha podhu,

naan yennai namba villai, yen kannai namba villai

The translated version of the above lyrics (with help of few friends)

I am a student who has written an exam called Love and awaiting results (waiting for his reply)

When I saw my results on his book of thoughts,

Neither could I  believe my score nor could I believe my eyes…

I used F,2B and 6B pencils for this sketch.

Hitched!!

After ‘the proposal’, it is just logical to follow up with getting ‘Hitched’… This is my take on the movie poster of “The Ugly Truth”.

In looking at  a picture, the viewer’s eye is unconsciously directed around the picture area by the arrangement of lines and shapes. By using directional lines, we can guide the viewer to what the artist intends to look them at, says Ron Tiner.  My interpretation is , if u see the path that i have shown they converge at a point, (at least in the figure). Here are two different people converging on a common point (love).  I wanted to publish this sketch today coz tomorrow is valentine’s day.
