Hindustani Music Concert



Yesterday was an interesting day... We got Tanush's ears pierced. My little baby is entering into the world of toddlership.. We normally do that for our babies on their first B'day, but I decided to get it done now and then go to US.. So, my little one got neatly dressed up for the ordeal and came along with me.. I am thankful to the man who pierced his ears - we didn't go for the gunshot kind, instead went to the Acharya-kind, where they insert a needle into an earring and then just pierce the ear fast, and then fix the screw from behind. Tanush cried when the job was being done, but soon was fine.. He looks cute :)

Evening Appa and I went to a lovely Hindustani Music Concert by Pt. Shivkumar Sharma and Ustad Zakir Husain. The concert was awesome... Thanks to dad the seating was wonderful too.Two and a half hours of bliss!!! And then we had to leave only because I didn't want to stay away from Tanush for too long..

I drew the above sketch before the show started. When the curtains were still down. And the below one, when the artists were tuning their musical instruments... I didn't have my sketchbook, and had only a ballpen, so I came home and redrew the top one from a very rough sketch, while the one below was drawn with enough time on hand..

Congratulations on your big day and for the achievement of drawing in public. I usually sit in a corner where no one can see me and draw the back of peoples'heads. YOu did very well to draw at a concert

Well done! Drawing in public is a challenge - I find if I don't do it regularly I lose confidence quickly so do it again quick!

Lovely work--I am nervous about sketching in public too but when I do I find people are very polite and encouraging.

There are great sketches. I am still too afraid to draw in public. I hope to get over that soon.
