Woman Drawings

There is in every true woman's heart, a spark of heavenly fire, which lies dormant in the broad daylight of prosperity, but which kindles up and beams and blazes in the dark hour of adversity.

I drew Mirabai with her statue as a reference. Unfortunately, I didn't get the hands right :((


  1. Love the simplicity of the first drawing. Thank you.

  2. Very nice work Ruby..... very well done.

    have a nice weekend,

    Greetings, Joop

  3. Like the expression on the first drawing. Something about it gets me thinking as to what she is thinking.

  4. They are the marvelous piece of art, you are a genius.

  5. Nice drawings, I like very much those clean lines.
    Greetings from Asturias, Spain.

  11. Thanks Adrian, Joop, Bob, Sprinkles, digital.., Xurde Radio, Ramakrishnan and Sandy. I am glad you enjoyed these.

    @Red, Dave - I was intrigued by her expression too.. :)

    Andy, I can't believe it that you found it was Julia :))) Although the pic is okay, it is a far cry from the reference I used.
