From my Sketchbook!

The first one is of an Indian actress...any guesses????....well actually I had received a forwarded mail from one of my friends to take a look at the drawings by an unknown artist...I dont know who that artist is....but to practice I sketched this one by seeing that drawing...The original one by the unknown artist was better I feel.
This sketch of Mahatma Gandhiji I learnt from a portrait book. U can purchase many books to learn sketching from. There are many types like Landscapes, Temples, Portraits, Nature.....etc..

Water color painting

I did this Painting long back when I was learning Water colors. I used a very old calendar for reference.
