"Prabha...This is a very nice sketch except for the fact that you have made the base too tall. Even with that your sketch looks attractive and the memorial is very identifiable. I also like the way you have done the sand.

"This is very nice Prabha. I remember the view that you had and I think you have represented it very well. The elephant looks beautiful! The red motif around it should, I think, continue to the two edges. That would make your sketch even more…"

"Nice ones Prabha. I agree with Kalpana's comments. The sketches of the musicians and the terracotta piece are good and the coloured version of the latter is very nice. I think just a little more attention to perspective in your sketch of the lily…"

"Aditi...I can't find anything seriously wrong with the drawing and it is instantly recognisable as a sketch of Egmore Station. On the whole it is a very pleasing sketch."

"Prosenjit...your point is well made and it works for most, if not all subjects. For example, while sketching a building I would start with the largest forms and how these masses relate to one another, then mark the solids and voids, and then move on…"

"At our weekend events I usually sketch in sketch books. For this one, because I knew that our subjects were likely to be in constant motion, I was undecided whether to stay with pen & in or use charcoal or graphite. I therefore came with what I…"

"Prabha...This is very nice! The figures are very well drawn and stands out form the column quite effectively. The proportions are also good except perhaps at the hip (but perhaps that is how the original was)."
