Unfinished, no longer


It was probably January 2012. I saw this beautiful magazine cover photograph, and challenged myself to sketch it out. I took the help of my art teacher to get the facial proportions right and began working on the fabric. And then, somewhere down the line, I abandoned the sketch. I cannot recall why. I occasionally looked at it with disappointment. Over a year and a half later, I unearthed it from the depths of my cupboard.

The model, and the portrait

 

I promised to spend a little time on it as often as possible. First the face, then the hair, then the finishing… It was test of my patience, and I almost lost it, as I quickly filled in the colours. And here it is, at long last, a former unfinished portrait, now complete.

Stories, places, hobbies, musings, maybe the odd poem... Hopefully, all these seemingly random pieces will fit together one day to reveal the grand mosaic that the cosmic universe has planned for me.
