I had seen online somewhere, a batik print painting of a mother and daughter inspired by Jamini Roy’s famous painting ‘Mother and Child’. It gave me an idea and I was frantically looking for an artist that can paint something in similar styles with two daughters and a mother.
While I was looking and asking around for an artist that can capture the essence of what I was feeling, I started studying Jamini Roy’s style, his color palette; his crisp and clean lines inspired me to doodle and makes faces using simple shapes. After about a zillion posts it notes, it occurred to me that I should fill colors in my sketches and see how they pan out.

I’ll certainly try to paint more in similar technique and will share as I progress.
