Posting a portrait for today.
I was surfing through my photo gallery.
This little chef caught my attention.
The photo was taken a long time back, when this small wonder of mine was all ready to cook without fire at school.
She was very excited about it. More so because of her chef cap and the apron.
She prepared a sweet dish out of beetroot, jaggery and grated fresh coconut.
I felt like sketching her. And here she is.
Used a charcoal and a HB pencil for this.
Took around 1 hour 10 minutes to do this.
Sketching after a long time. There were phone calls, constant knocks on the door that were playing with my mind. Of course I knew they were testing me out. But then I guess sketching helps develop patience to overgrow a lot of things.
