This was my gift to Manu, for his birthday, this time (2008). I wanted to make something with my own hands, and sketching a picture of his was the best idea I felt. I also had to make sure that he didn’t know what I was upto. Anyway he hadn’t really seen any good sketch of mine. I know, your partner should be able to rattle this kinds of facts latest probably by the time your wedding gets fixed; but Manu just knew enough to say ,”She likes drawing… you know”!!

So this had to be the best idea ;). Well he liked it… he did!!



  1. So glad he liked it, he is very handsome.
    I love the accuracy of your pencil work.
    I am slowly coming to colour – your watercolours are so appealing, I must try it.
    Thanks for your kind words,

  2. HI…I really liked this portrait…wonderful…
