Look what I found!

Do you remember this photograph? I found it with Vini. I dont know how it got there and she couldnt remember either. Thought that it would bring a smile back on your faces. We looked so different, didnt we? Nads, you and Mashantakka, are the ones who look more or less the same. Pa and Ma had obviously already been to Kathmandu as the cane backed painting of the cranes is already up on the wall.

Paintings by the Jayaramans

Ramesh's mum and dad both made a painting each during their recent trip to Delhi. I wish they'd managed to do more. The painting of the bride has been made by his mum and the landscape by his dad. For his dad this was his first oil painting and he really enjoyed making it. Ramesh's mum has made a few more in the recent past.

The Principal - Pen and Ink

The Principal
Ramesh one of our teachers has been working on Pen and Ink studies in classs while we have been struggling with our Portrait exercise. I've been sorely tempted to copy him but decided that maybe i should do them at home :p. Made this one and one more of me last night in my sketchbook. Mr Vijaymohan's I have made using a photograph taken in class a few days ago as a reference.

Self Portraits

I've put below the new self portrait below along with 3 more that i had made earlier. One difference is that this one and the one right at the bottom are from a photographs and the two sandwiched in between were with the help of a mirror. Which one do you vote for? And of course you have to choose one :D I showed sango the middle one when she was here a week ago. She said that there was a lot of likeness except for the nose. She thought that i was trying to be kind to myself by drawing a smaller nose than the one that i had!! :D

.......... we now have Jasmine. The girl sitting on the far right. It's still the settling in period for her. A bit of a shirker but as Ramesh says we might as well put up with her as we have her for just a short while more. Till we move!!

PXN8.COM - Photos Made Easy

I had recommended another site a while back and later on, while trying it, I discovered that they expected you to email your photographs to them and they would correct them for a fee!!

Well this one is just what you need. upload your photograph from your desktop or Flickr account and make some basic changes - rotating, lighten, brighten, change contrast, crop, red eye reduction, teeth whitening :P etc.. I tried it out with a photograph of mine from Flickr. Nice Results. And like quite a few other things on the web nowadays it is free :)
