    2. Davy- How did this video make it a full 24 hours on YouTube without my knowledge?? LOL. I LOVE how Agnes used colors for the shadows. She really knew what she was doing here. These are the types of drawings that I aim for! BTW, 2 videos almost back-to-back. Thank you!

    3. Agnes’ work is excellent and quick, I like the colors. The eyes are fabulous. Some observations: The model seems a very simple woman, the artist has represented a beautiful, self-confident person.I do not like the narration, it seems an advertisement, I think music is enough

    8. @13Moondancer I had the same issue. It’s got to do with the paper or the surface you are painting on. With a high quality sanded paper you can overlay colors better. With cheaper papers you have the problem of colors not holding on. Sanded papers are Art Spectrum Colorfix, Uart, Sennelier La Carte etc. (You can buy a sampler from Dakota Art Pastels)Most beginners start with a non-sanded paper like Canson Mi-teintes which is not expensive.

    11. I’ve read both your Vish Puri books and I can’t wait for your next one… I feel totally transported to the sub-continent as I read them. You have captured the Indian/English language beautifully, coupled with your humour and characterisation these books are real winners!! I don’t even like waiting for them to come out in paperback, I buy them as soon as they are released. Thank you for the joy you have given me. Till the next book…
