In continuation with my previous post, posting here another drawing that I made. This drawing with pen and ink on paper, A3 size, is titled Manthan. Manthan (मंथन) is a Hindi word meaning churning or deep pondering over something.

Like I mentioned in my previous post, I feel art is self expression and does not need an explanation. The viewers can interpret it in different ways. However, when i was asked to write a note with perception of this work, this is what I wrote:

Our human mind is always working, churning, thinking, meditating - consciously or unconsciously. An innocent girl, even at young age, is a bundle of thoughts and imagination. I have tried to portray this using lines, repetition, rhythm, transitional lines, and subtle changes in the colours of the ink used for the drawing.
