Lady in Red

I came across a new weekly challenge - The Summer of Colour 2; Ice Cream Inspirations held by Kristin. You can find more about it here. I personally feel that it's a lovely challenge. I would like to give it a try; how about you??? Do visit the link, read it and if interested do take part...And I am sure you would be interested! The first prompt is Rainbow Sherbet, isn't it exciting?& lot of fun? I am busy creating that...

Jamini Roy has been one of my greatest inspirations for quite sometime now. I had painted the Puja Lady as I call her in blue saree a couple of months back (See the post here) and I received an order based on that. The client wanted the lady in red. So here's the beautiful lady draped in a red saree. What do think about the background? Do let me know how you find her...:)




Lady in Red, 9x12 inches, Acrylics

I will be announcing a give away soon....so stay tuned :)

Linking it to Paint Party Friday
