    Megha, thanks for your comment on my latest work. You've been producing some lovely works on dance. Dancers are one of my favorite subjects and I need to find time to do more of them. I like your clean line and use of color, and as always, I appreciate the historical and cultural significance of your work. Lovely!

    This is a nice idea for a series sketch. Maybe you could try some different angles to represent the dancers.

    Megha, I am missing seeing your sketching. Have you shifted focus to other creative outlets?
