So we actually pulled it off … after three weeks of practice, getting serious in the final week, we put on a show of Rabindranath Tagore’s short skit called “Last Rites.” The occasion was the second Annual Day in Banganga Co-operative Society, 24 January 2015.
Some scenes … followed by the video.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 920 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 15 trips to carry that many people.

Okay, this post is very very very late, but anyway, in October I posted my painting of spotted owlets, which I copied from a photo at Exploration Art school. I also wrote the way I made them. Anyway, I said I would do a post on the other painting I made, a wolf. So now I am doing the said post.
HOW I MADE THE WOLF:
- I put the picture upside down next to the canvas…
- Then used a pencil to draw the outline of the wolf, and also outline any dark parts like ears, nose, etc. I used the pencil to sort of measure the lines and angles.
Also, I didn’t copy the background, though I did mark which were the darker parts.
- Used oil pastels to color in the wolf, and an eraser to blend the colors into each other, and into the canvas.
- Did the same for the background. I put a darker color in the parts that were darker in the picture.
One funny thing is, in the photo the wolf is looking forward. In my drawing the wolf is looking down a bit.
It looks good both ways though. :-)
