Pastel work done in 2005-06. I love the texture of this medium and it's bold colouring effect. The first picture is entitled 'Dance'. It depicts statues in a garden in movement, a touch of irony, it is in a way a tribute to this medium as it allows me to feel free and playful. The second is a village woman who modelled for us in college, I loved the richness of her saree and glow of her chocolate skin and so I naturally chose to work with Pastels.
