107 Portrait 1

Alas!

After years of frustration, herewith is my very first “finished” portrait. I used a picture of my one year old niece as a model. Of course the result is not that good and neither does it look like her but I’m proud that I was able to finish it as most of the drawings that I made were half-done.

This is the first drawing I posted here and I know I need a lot of practice. My daily notebook of to-dos, an ordinary pencil, 8B Staedtler and Pilot eraser are the materials I used.

93 Re: Frame of Mind

Instantly, thoughts overflowed my mind as I read Daily Prompt’s Frame of Mind; blogging and painting—amongst those that interest me.

 

Modern Mona Lisa, a contemporary version of da Vinci’s self-portrait, renders acceptance with herself and adaptation to change. Her smile depicts happiness and contentment whilst bravely facing challenges ahead. A work of art which started since she was born, gradually revealing clearer image of herself as the world continuously revolves. Painted on a canvas, it shall be hanged in an exhibit’s wall, sooner the color will fade, by and by will be forgotten.
