Portrait Study in Neutral Light

12 x 14 , Oil on canvas

Private Collection

This is a speed work , tried sketching and drawing with some speed.
Managed to sketch and then paint so much in around 3 - 4 hours.
I am quite satiisfied with the tones .


  1. It looks very polished in spite of being a speed painting..if you are able to create something of this caliber in an hour, it is a great gift!

  2. Love this. Especially the way the edges of the bottoms of her rimless glasses just fuse into the skin - masterfully done!

  3. Hi Rishi,
    This is a lovely painting. Your portraits are turning out very well. You seem to have grasped the subject thoroughly.
    Congrats and best wishes.

  4. Rishi, your portraits are brilliant.

  5. Hi Rishi! beautiful painting u done!i like ur work.

  6. Hi,how are you,
    each and every portrait of your's shows different expressions,this portrait as for me tells that she is waiting for something or longing...
    nice use of colors

  7. This portrait painting has brought out the - many emotions- of the subject to the surface of the canvas. Good one.


Florentina , a beautiful lass on a bright sunny day.
My wife selected this picture which I enjoyed painting.
I love the vibrant colours . The best part I painted the major part of the painting in two hours.
I guess I am improving.
