Lord Krishna

Hi, I drew this picture of a sandalwood idol of our Hindu God - Lord Krishna, who is playing on the flute. It is on handmade paper which is quite rough, and I used Prang and two sided Faber Castell coloured pencils. I used only shades of yellow, brown, and orange, and of course black for the shadows.

Re: Lord Krishna

Nice piece! Maybe try using color in your shadows instead of just black? Purple makes lovely shadows, and would be a great complement to your color palette. Of course, this piece is already finished and lovely!

Re: Lord Krishna

Hello and welcome, Prabha!
Nice piece, very well done!
It surely was very challenging to get all this details right.

I was thinking the same thing when you said 'of course black for the shadows'. Black should really be the last color you think of grabbing for shadows. I really like the looseness of this drawing, and the earthy color combination.

Re: Lord Krishna

Hi, and thank you all for your warm welcome, and appreciation. I do tend to use black for shadows, as shadows in India are very dark, but will try out your suggestion and use other colours - such as purple. Prabha :-)
