Although I am not a trained painting artist, (having taken up metal work in my college ), I love experimenting and teaching myself to paint. When I saw this image, I knew I simply had to test my skills.
Here is the original image and to the left is a capture of the very first layer of paint, here I have just blocked in the major tones. This is the first time that I am working with a tiny double zero brush to make doubly sure that I get in not just all the fine details of this rustic Rajasthani face, but also hopefully the expression on his face, that seems to say that he miles away in his thoughts!!
