When drawing the human form, I look for the strong gestural qualities and focus on capturing the movement and energy in the pose. Drawing the figure has been instrumental in refining my technical skills. It has enabled me to use my entire body to express, thus making my line work much bolder. Even now quick gesture studies are my favourite ways to warm up and get into the rhythm of drawing. My piece Billboard Sunrise (in Private collection) was my first ever large-scale figurative composition, narrating my impressions of the Maximum City – Mumbai.
