The Serve

January 31, 2010 2 comments


With the Australian open concluding yesterday, I thought of sketching something relevant to that. Hence ‘The Serve’.  The toss , the strike and the follow up have been captured. I used HB and 2B pencils in this sketch. “Captured in motion” series is one my favourites, this sketch adds one more to the collection.

Tranquil Solitude

To quote Shelley, this  young woman is enjoying her ‘tranquil solitude’.

I just remembered the lyrics of a song from an old tamil movie “aadi peruku” which paints the sketch in words. The song goes like this

“Thanimailiye inimai kaana mudiyama…”.

Perspective

January 18, 2010 3 comments


In this sketch,  the view point of Christ is told from the front side, which gives a different perspective than the one below (from one of my previous posts). From this view, we see that there are other people nailed to the cross in the back ground. I just wanted to see the same sketch in both charcoal and pencil, thats why i used pencil here.  4B and 6B pencils were used for this.

Niagara falls

The next on my list of elements of nature is Water. This  is one section of the american side of the falls. The falls is not very high but very wide in expanse. The sky behind this giant cataract was purposely  drawn darker to emphasize the whiteness of water. The black rock and the trees offer further contrast to this white fury.  I did the sketch in charcoal.

Back to my theme – Elements of Nature. This time around its Space. I was thinking of how to represent it,  until I stumbled upon this figure. I thought this sketch has more to it than just representing Space. I used charcoal for this sketch.
