Lady with Diyas

Hello Everyone,

I am back with my new work - Lady with Diyas. This is based on a photography of Mr. Prakash Hegde, in which he has awesomely captured his beautiful wife Mrs. Asha.

Decided to paint the picture, the day when I saw that for the first time. However, I was hesitant to do that, actually scared of spoiling her beautiful face. But time has come now ... somehow I have gathered all the confidence and here is the output.

With an active toddler at home, the only peaceful time to work is at night, once my daughter goes to bed. But for this particular picture, it was really difficult to get the right tones at nights. I really appreciate the help provided by my husband .. he took care of our kid, took her out, cooked food, worked from home, cancelled his weekend plans and what not.... just to allow me to work in day light and complete the work to my satisfaction.

Received lot of appreciation for this work, and most importantly both Prakashanna and Ashakka loved it :)

 Oil colors  on canvas...Size : 24 X 30 inches


  1. Amazing! Is this oil on canvas?

  2. Perfection .. she looks exactly like this for however long I have known her...ever green and stunning...nice to see someone whom I recognise in ur art work ... u have lovely talent .. nice that u found time for this.

  3. Thank you very much, Lekha. No doubt ... she is extremely beautiful with a golden heart, still she looks like a College girl, I just want to know the secret ;) If I remember correctly, this photograph was used for the cover page of some magazine, captured beautifully by Prakashanna.

    Thanks for your kind words.
