Painting Mother Meera has been by far my most rewarding portrait so far. I have over the years visited Mother Meera to receive her darshan , her spiritual blessing. I was determined to capture her beautiful spiritual light that shines from the core of her being. This was a portriat like no other & each stage of this process was deeply moving & pushed my Artistic skills to the limit. For the skintone i used burnt umber, burnt sienna, cadmium yellow deep, raw sienna, green umber , violet , naples yellow & flesh tone. For mother meera’s hair Vandyke brown, violet , burnt sienna, alizarin , ultra marine blue, cerulean blue & paynes grey plus titanium white was utilized.
