I detest doing still life! Why draw objects when you can draw people? So this was one part of my Commercial Art assignments that ensured that I quit the course in a hurry! You can possibly see my heart was not in this 😦 Even the normally-generous-with-his-praise tutor had to tell me to improve my […]
One of the first assignments in my Commercial Art Course was using dots to draw objects – not lines! ( I did only three lessons, and found that I’d had enough of being told what to draw) Here are close ups of some of those drawings! href=”https://betukbandi.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/20130630-195820.jpg”> And this was a shiny faux leather coin […]
Here is a portrait of my dog, and a few close ups for the details- sadly it is in total tatters!
These sketches were submitted as part of an assignment I did for a correspondence course in commercial art! These were of our beloved greyhound – the old gentleman was nearly 14 years old when these were done. The next four sketches are of ‘The Doggess Who Wouldn’t Be’ – the most beautiful black Cocker Spaniel […]
I discovered a bundle of sketches which had been packed away in a trunk, while we moved across the country on my husband’s postings! They are in a bad shape – so I thought I’d scan and preserve them before the brittle paper disintegrates totally! This is sketch of my brother – I’ve always loved […]
I sketched the Moti Dungri (Pearl Hillock) fort some 25 years ago from the terrace of our single storeyed bungalow. The sketch is not dated, but I guess it must have been 1987 from the date on the preceding sketch in the notebook. It must have been a winter day – one would not be […]
It finishes at 72″ X 90″ – it shall definitely need borders! And since I have run out of the grey printed background fabric, will have to make do with grey solid. Everything is going into cold storage now – I have a son getting married in exactly two months’ time 🙂 I must add […]
The circle and the Drunkards path ( a quarter circle place on one corner of a square) are two patches which send a shudder up any beginner quilter’s back! I had to encounter both when working on the just takes 2 quilt – a 2012 mystery quilt along! There were plenty of circles -I was quite […]
So now only 11 blocks left for my Just Takes 2 quilt! Some of these 11 are the toughest ones 😦 28 have already been joined sewn together- quarter of the quilt top done! Meanwhile, here are the rest!
