On this short trip to Jodhpur I gifted the original pencil drawing portrait of Shri Ajay Kumar to himself that I had drawn in 2014 using the reference picture I was provided with. I was also asked by him to draw a portrait of someone very special to him. I will upload and share that drawing portrait also once its completed.

Now let me tell you something about the making of this pencil sketch. Actually I had started drawing portaits in 2014 itself and I was not much aware of the type of papers and pencils artists use to draw. So, I took a white paper and an HB pencil and started drawing the face. But I was not able to draw the white beard and mustache. Why ? because I was searching for a white pencil to draw on a white paper. But I found a way. I shaded the whole paper including the face and external area and erased the area that required to be white. Funny ? it is.
