Some Faces

Trying to do a better job of drawing faces -- from photographs, in my new gray-white paged sketchbook:


(late) Kishore Kumar, one of the greatest popular singers in Hindi


Dilip Kumar, the ultimate tragic hero in Hindi films when my husband was a boy.


a young girl, drawn from the newspaper


A Maharaja of Patiala, from an old photograph. What a beautiful face -- more beautiful than my drawing. And dripping with jewels. The way one imagines a Maharaja should be.

tada -- thank you! I'm no good at memes, though I've tried to be from time to time. Please don't mind if I pass on this.
