I’m looking forward to 2011. One of the things that I missed since we moved from Dhaka are the art groups that I was a part of. Having said that on not finding one here, I did little to start one of my own. Recently when I heard of a group starting up with plans of meeting for Life Drawing sessions, I jumped right in. We’ve met a few times already to sketch and chat and I hope we continue in the new year.
The sketch above was made at the Barefoot Café from a brass bust and the one below is from a photograph that I plan to use as a reference for a painting. As always I was reminded of the fact that it takes just a few weeks to get rusty as far as sketching/drawing from Life is concerned.
I also attended one of the Pencil Jammer events at Lalbagh in Bangalore. Was so excited to meet up with like minded folks that I forgot to sketch!!
Happy New Year!
