Captivating as all the colorful clothing and textiles are, it was the statuary that captivated me on that night. Ceramic heads of a couple and a stone Ganesha -- God of wisdom, knowledge and new beginnings.
Lately, I've been avoiding the initial pencil/ink drawing and instead proceeding directly to the painting. This gives a certain immediacy to the outcome, although accuracy is often lost. No matter, it's fun to change the challenges.
