Light and Shade – 1st Blogversary

This day last year, I started this blog to channelize my focus on sketching. Its been quite a journey so far. To be very honest I really didnt think the blog would survive beyond 3 months. But the encouragement and support from friends  and the response from other people in general has been overwhelming.  I feel like writing a lot about the year long sketching journey …probably will do that sometime soon. .maybe dedicate an entire page for this . Grad school is keeping me on my toes.. got series of midterms in the following weeks..

A word on this sketch “Light and Shade” . I personally think the timing couldnt have been better to post this sketch today as this totally describes what my blog is all about ..Light and Shade.  A simple cup, spoon and table salt container are used for illustration.

It feels good to know there are handful of people following my work and checking it periodically. Thankyou all, people,  for your support and encouragement.

P.S: I took a photograph of my sketch instead of scanning it, hence less clarity.
