Re: An invitation to post your P&I sketches, doodles, scratchings and scribbles .......

Nice work Balaji, the one of the room involved some careful observation in order for the perspective to work with all those straight lines.
Somehow you've managed to get the light seemingly coming strongly from the right yet I can see only the light on her face & the bleed out of the cupboard door on the right as evidence of the techniques you used to do it !
Very skillful use of technique on such a brief sketch without resorting to extensive shading , shadows & thinned broken lines toward the light etc ,thanks for posting this - most instructive .

The portrait is sensitive - you've caught the vulnerability of old age well.
Cheers Mike
