    Is this a newly acquired talent or am I privy to it for the first time? Anyway, I see Alexis – the perfectionist here too 🙂

    Paresh: I have been learning sketching for the past 2-3 months with the help of books. Only now I have a few sketches that are not bad. It is far from perfect. But I am glad that you liked it 😉

    Really nice… I always wanted to learn pencil sketching, but thought it was very difficult. I think I should give it a try. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Thulasy: Yes, you are so right. Drawing the eyes is one of the most difficult part in sketching the face. I still have not mastered it. I think it will take me months of practice to get the expressions right. The sad look is by accident:-)

    Maya: Thanks… Yes, you should give it a try. Get some good books on pencil sketching and start sketching. You will be sketching away in no time. My problem is that I only spend about 30-45 minutes a day on this even though I want to spend more time. BTW it is quite addictive 🙂

    As always, I find great peace in going through your pages…I like the work… the way you have sketched the two of them together is good as I can see a vague outline or may be none that separates the two…

    warm wishes,Mary

    Sheeba: The get the correct emotion in the eyes in a sketch is very difficult. It happened by accident. I am not reached a level where I can draw the emotion that I want. Still a lot to learn and practice.
