I made this painting last week. It was almost a year, i had completely stopped painting. After marriage, i didnt get a chance, even if i had got the chance, i was in no mood to paint. My hubby kept asking me to start it again and I decided this when i went to a library.

I found a book with this picture on its cover page. I got that book, went home and started hunting for my charcoal painting stuff. Four hours of effort, but still I felt i could have done it better than this. But getting a compliment from my dear husband is just like winning an oscar :D

I dont know if i spent more time than required, but after a large time gap, i had to put a lot of effort in it. This pic is not so dark n clear, but i am eager to know how i performed :)
