Tribal Boy .... Again!

Tribal Boy, Charcoal on Paper, (11.7" X 16.5") 
Added a little more definition to the ear using an oil pastel. Hopefully that makes the drawing look more complete.

All comments are most welcome. Thanks for stopping by.

Tribal Boy

Tribal Boy, Charcoal on Paper, (11.7" X 16.5") 
This boy belongs to the Bhil community of Maharashtra. Historically they were tribals but now they speak the local languages and participate in all walks of life. Nevertheless, they make great subjects for paintings. :)

Mutual Love

Mutual Love, Watercolour on Paper, (11" x 14") 
This is my entry for Dailypaintworks's "The Emotion Challenge". I have attempted to portray the love and affection the lovely little girl feels for her per turtle and the reciprocation of the same by the turtle.

Attentive, Charcoal on Paper, (11.75" x 8")  

The handsome, intelligent face of this female got me interested in drawing her. My effort was towards capturing the attentive gaze she has cast here as she listens to someone over her shoulder.

I was gifted a brand new Daler Rowney Drawing Pad by a friend and couldn't wait to try it out. This drawing is based on a photograph on Deviant Art by Crysta James, who is a fabulous photographer. Thank you so much Crysta. :)

P.S. I wanted to titled this pice "Girl with the pearl earring"! But wont that be too presumptious !?! ;)
