We all know that  India fascinates the whole world especially when it comes to Dance.  Each form represents the culture and ethos of a particular region or a group of people.  Some forms are purely entertaining and some are soul-liberating .  There are Dances performed in royal courts to the accompaniment of classical music and this was an intellectual art form. A very important feature of Indian classical dances is the use of the mudra or hand gestures by the artists as a short-hand sign language to narrate a story and to demonstrate certain concepts such as objects, weather, nature and emotion. Many classical dances include facial expressions as an integral part of the dance form.

Some may think their dance looks funny, but for me it is not.  Actually I made an acrylic painting on paper,  an Indian couple dancing, enjoying their company, the music and the good weather  is dancing with them too.  I painted this 11 years ago 🙂

It was Saturday, usually we don’t have work on weekends but I had this Offline interlock with Agency and Client for a certain TVC Project. Less people at the office and almost zero phone calls. I could steal this moment to make an entry to my new sketch book that I bought 2 months ago. I used Derwent Studio Pencils and Berkeley acid free watercolor pad for this one. I saw a picture of a woman from Shutterstock and its seems like a nice subject. I am not giving full on this because from time to time I have to leave my workstation and go to the editing suite. See what’s going on there. I just want to entertain myself since I am the only one here at the Marketing Room, and my table is far behind it and I have a perfect view of other empty tables…Anyway here it is, and hope you like it. You can also visit the website where I uploaded most of my works. Thanks again.  http://emeraldsantos.deviantart.com/#/d3chy3g

 

I always wanted to be a fashion designer.  I remember, I used to play with textiles and imagining what to do with it.  My parents was in Textile business, they were into retail and wholesale supply to most big Garment Factories in the Philippines.  I guess this explains why most of my subjects are women.

I have something to share again with you.  Saw this one from a local Fashion Magazine.  Woman in Black.  I made a sketch of her, just using Mongol Pencil on my ordinary Sketchbook.  Here it is.
