Life Drawing

These are the portraits of my nieces who came visiting us while on their summer vacation. They insisted that I draw their portraits and I too jumped at the opportunity! It was after a very long time, that I was drawing from life and I thought its a nice chance to test myself! It took me almost 45 minutes to complete each portrait which I think is a little long! However, with regular practice, this can be shortened. Well...I had an exciting time sketching these portraits. As for the girls, they tried hard not to doze off while posing... :))

They loved their portraits :)


  1. Ramesh, your nieces are beautiful, and you sketched them well. i wouldn't worry about the time spent, but on the quality of the end result.

  2. @Studio at the farm,
    Thank you very much! I guess you are right about the quality but then the time factor is also important as the model gets impatient and uncomfortable sitting for long!

  3. What a great opportunity to draw two rather lovely faces!

  4. Thank you Liz! They are lovely for sure :)
