Venkateswaran Dakshinamoorthy

People who enjoy and love the carnatic based movie songs will be very much aware of this beloved soul.  Not much explanation or story required to introduce this piece, I believe!  The motive was to finish the strokes with less than an hour and that was accomplished.  Could have improved more, but this looked satisfactory.

This is the first post of the year, the subject is one of my favorite dancer.  It took less than an hour of one sitting(approx 50 mins) to make this. Hopefully I'm exploring and picking up the nuances of dynamic nature of this medium .  The size is about 1/4th of an A4 sheet :)

from the lost pages.

This was done long back in a simple unruled A3 notebook with a ball point pen.  Found this while dusting some old books.  It's quite surprising by the way it reveals where I started and where I'm ended up now.

Watched the movie 'Blue Is the Warmest Color' and that was enough to inspire me to make these dark marks which eventually turned out to what you see below!

I'm falling in love with this medium!
