Re: WIP Thread - Lady Saint, 16th Century India

Is this going to be a copy of your Avatar? There are some beautiful colors in there.

What is the name of the Saint, so I can look her up

I take it that you are using a graphite pencil on some type of paper of unknown dimensions.

It would help if the photo was taken square on with a little more contrast, but okay as is.

Will you be using just oil pastels or mixed media?

WIPs are always interesting to me, looking forward to what you do.

Regards,
Trier

Very nice sketch, sonihal! I see you have decided to include Krishna in your painting.

I will be following your progress with this very challenging piece. Good luck!

Yes, it is copy of my avatar

Name of Saint is Meera Bai. She was devotee of Hindu Lord Krishna. Many legends about her.

Will be using Mungyos Gallery Soft Oil Pastels

Paper is Strathmore pastel paper, 11" x 14"

Now I realize I have to blend the redness of her cheeks little bit more with rest of face.

Interesting how one sees room for improvement after taking photograph.

Moving right along, I see. The skin tones look lovely framed with the hair and the pink.
