These are super, Rajesh. Before our eyes you've developed from the rather diffident sketcher when I first came here to someone with a defined style of his own, and not afraid to break the mold, as in the fellow leaning against the car, with car and man anchored to nothing but the sky. The car's not much chop, but who cares when the human figure, and those in the other sketches too, radiate attitude. I like the houses for your viewpoint and the colouring everywhere is definite, adding to the impact of the strong composition. You could probably make a wall of your sketches in chronological order and say in front of them, "See how far I've come by just keeping at it when I could find the time."

Andre - thank you for your kind words.

What better words will an amateur wish to hear.

I wonder if it is because I posted after a long time. So even if it is regular average improvement - it could appear "significant" :) Just like a nephew/niece you see after long period and they appear having sauddenly grown tall!

Also I must admit - I picked only the "best" from 50-60 sketches I did.

But like all of us - there is efforts to try to improve - so I guess there will be some reflection of that.

Thanks once again for the encouragement

Rajesh

The two important aspects of "regular average improvement" are that it comes only to those who sketch regularly, and that it is cumulative, like the interest on a savings account.

I agree Mulund-Ravi's house is amazing - you clearly have nothing to worry about in the perspective department! It's really great to see your stuff again - your birds always enchant me with their individuality and character.

I remember your first art post. The first drawing (a lion) truly stood out for its sensitivity to the anatomy, its gesture, and spatial qualities. Yes, as you said in that post, it was a drawing, not a sketch. I wondered how you would make the leap to sketching. That's not often done -- that is, going from tight and careful to loose and quick. To my delight, you are doing just that! Your original objective helped you reach this goal. In your first post on the Sketching Forum, you said you wanted to be able to draw from real life, and it’d be nice if you could do it fast!! Well, sketching is definitely the way to work on those goals. You have been willing to change the appearance of your drawings -- making them true sketches -- in order to enjoy the results you are getting. Or, could it be that you always enjoyed the appearance of sketches, and your journey has been learning to adopt those delightful qualities all along? Either way, every time you add new skills, I am thrilled that they haven't stiffened your sketches. As they continue to evolve, they remain sensitive, gestural and carry a great feel for spatial relationships! And they definitely remain sketches! Bravo!

Thank you Russ, Matthew and Rebecca.

Goodness me Rebecca! How could you have remembered that! How incredibly sensitive of you and kind of you. I am blessed and honoured. Thank you so much.

I had forgotten about the lion and had to go search my first post.

>> Or, could it be that you always enjoyed the appearance of sketches, and your journey has been learning to adopt those delightful qualities all along?

Well I'll be honest - I had no idea what a "sketch" was untill around that time I joined the forum. Before that I was only "drawing" in a controlled fashion. I then saw some sketches and began wanting to do this "fast-food" format of drawing. I saw it more in terms of a way to keep in practice more than a "form of art" on it's own.

I almost immediately stumbled on this site and then read Russ's "e-book" and saw his art and just got totally hooked! The book got me started for sure. I still use the same tools :)

Once again thanks for the encouragement - Andre, Russ, Matthew and Rebecca. I don't have an art circle of my own and without doubt this progress was only possible due to the constant encourgement.
