Looking for subjects to practice my new found skill of portraits I keep browsing magazines, newspaper and articles.. Have also been trying to make portraits of a lot of my family members but none to the perfection.. So I'm still in the process of refining these skills..

Last night I was sitting on the sofa and reading a magazine.. saw an advertisement for a hair product.. and the model became the subject of my next portrait..

To be honest I don't even remember the brand  she was modeling for... : P

Another one....

The sketchbook project has really got me going...

Wherever and whenever I see a photograph I like I just wanna pick up my sketchbook and draw it..

While looking through one of my bags I got from India I found 2 of my magazines I bought to read during my journey to US.. but never got a chance to open it..

I was just turning the pages when one of the models immediately caught my eye as the subject of my next sketch....

and this is what I did while husband was busy watching television...

Portraits contd..... :)

Finally a portrait  I am really happy I made.. :)

I saw Christina Applegate's photograph in the newspapaer and immediately wanted to draw her portrait not thinking how it would turn out.. but according to my hubby.. it was perfect.. and I felt sooo good.. A major step ahead in my pursuit to be perfect in making portraits before I actually start making portraits in oils.. :)

Please leave comments.. :)

The Sketchbook Project

Recently I have registered myself in "The Sketchbook Project 2012" with The Brooklyn Art Library, New York.
They hold this annual tour of Sketchbooks submitted by artists like myself to go around 14 cities in US continent and even including countries like Canada, UK and Australia. Once it goes through this tour, it will be digitized and will permanently take rest in The Brooklyn Art Library.
I am so excited to be a part of this experience and look forward to jump in to my new sketchbook which arrived today with MY OWN NAME on it....

Must be submitted by January 31st, 2011.
P.S.: The cute Ms. caterpillar has been drawn by me.... :)
