Don't be so self-critical. It's lovely. Wish I could do half as good.
Awesome! Have you seen Van Gogh's drawing. Not the paintings, but the lesser seen drawings. You can google images him. Your pen marks remind me of Van Gogh!
Nora, That's a huge compliment !
You might have felt rusty... but it doesn't reflect at all on this sketch. Amazing sketch!

It doesnt look like you took a break with your pen work, for, this is stunning! The lines have simply played cris-cross magic!
Pretty :) :) :)
My friend,Live everyone else...I must sat it is BEAUTIFUL. You have the talent my friend.
I did not know you sketch, Ashok :) I am really really bad with all this. When you say, rusty and impatient, reminds me of the only art class I attended and the trainer said,"A drawing is never complete, you just abandon it".
what your trainer said is so true chintan...
I have riddle..In the morning, it has four legs, in the midday, it has two legs, and in the evening, it has three legs. This art is exactly the answer. Very nice!
yes, this is the evening!
I think you are being hard on yourself. Pen is a very difficult medium and you did a great job. Way to go.
i agree, Pen is a difficult medium as there is no chance for correction unlike pencil sketching.
I love this drawing, you have given the old man a sense of fragility, the atmosphere, the atmosphere of this drawing is very special. And you 're not rusty ;)
simply stunning! i can "see"/feel the action/movement in that drawing.very nicely done:)
Your drawings are so wonderful!
Brilliant art piece!love your pen stokes!!! Your blog is awesome! Thanks for stopping by my blog ,I appreciate your lovely comments!
This is magnificent, Ashok!
I can't comment on the technical aspects since I don't know any more than the art teacher in school taught me. However, as a viewer, I would like to tell you that you did one fabulous job on this one with just a pen. In college, I used to scratch down some random items using my pen on my notebooks while waiting for the next professor to come. But it was nothing like you sketched here. It is very difficult to add the little details in this kind of sketches but I can make the fine difference between one tree form another, one stone to the other. The visibility of elements such as the man's shadow, the returning birds, give this a realistic view. Even before I read your lines beneath the sketch, I felt as if this could very well be a black and white photo. What a camera did, you managed it through a pen. And yeah, the man does look like Mahatma Gandhi, the difference being that this person in your sketch has a lot more hair on his head. :D
Lively sketches! And I like your art as well as the architecture!
This is incredible and moving.
SO impressive, Ashok!!! outstanding work.
Actually it's the lively strokes that make this such a lovely sketch! It is perfect just as it is! :0)
Excellent work! The composition, perspective and values are spot on.
Love it! You've got great talents Ashok! Glad to be visiting here...
Rusty? It's awesome.
