Being Woman

Oil on Canvas

Sitting outside the dentist's office I felt jittery and was mindlessly flipping through an old magazine 
when I saw a public service ad for '
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation'. The photograph for the campaign was shot by 'Ruven Afanador' and the model was Crystal Renn. An absolutely gorgeous and timeless photograph !
The 'photograph' has been on my list of 'paintings to be done' for a while now and am glad I finally got to it. Figurative representational art is very tough to master and I have a long way to go.
I can see  flaws in the painting but I love it nevertheless :)


  1. I just saw your blog and I must say Pragya, you do a fascinating art work.

  2. @Apoorva Jain - Thanks :) If you enjoy anagrams and cryptic puzzles you should totally try 'The Hindu' crossword.

  3. Beautiful pose and excellent painting work Pragya!

  4. @Usha - Thanks aunty! and Congratulations on becoming a grandmom :)

  5. J'aime particulièrement l'attitude de votre personnage... Pleine de sensualité et de fraîcheur à la fois... Très joli travail, je vous félicite.
    Gros bisous
