My pencil sketching of Lord Shri Rama and Sita marraige

pencil drawing

This is my 50th post, thanks all for your support to this Magicsparklz blog. I started this blog as a hobby blog but it started to grow big with more audience. 

I am so happy that I posted this pencil sketching for my 50th post. Also to my surprise, it was not planned earlier. Every day I am learning new techniques in pencil sketching and yet to explore more...

I wanted to highlight few things so I used red pencil for Lord Shri Rama's tilak and Sita's kumkum also shading for borders.

Simple Maavu kolam/Rangoli-4

I have used Rice flour to draw this kolam and used coffee powder to make dots. After making filter coffee, don't throw the residue. Take the residue powder and spread on a paper and let it dry for 2-3 days. After it is dried you can use it for kolam. Simple isn't it?????
