Pencil Portrait – A Birthday Gift
Posted July 30, 2009on:
Last year, I was clueless on what to gift Ram on his birthday. Since I am not earning I was hesitant to buy him a gift with his money. A sweet wife that most men dream of, not spending husband’s money!! Well that’s not me, I love shopping for myself like all wives 😉
Birthday counts for something special. Then an idea crossed my mind. For one of my birthdays, a very close friend of mine gifted me a fabric she had painted herself. It felt nice because of the effort put into it. So I decided to bring out my creative side too.
I made a pencil portrait of Ram. An average portrait but I was happy with the result. It did bring a smile on his face too :-).
He bought me a sketching pencil set the following weekend to get me to do more sketches. Did he want me to improve his portrait??? ;-). Anyways I didn’t do that 🙂
This is my first pencil portrait and my pencil sketch after 10yrs or more:-)
