Mahatma Gandhi, or Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, or Bapu was born on 2nd October, 1869 and so today, we celebrate Gandhi Jayanti.
I made this pen and ink sketch of Gandhi Ji today. (I don’t do pen and ink sketches very often, but after pencils, they are the easiest medium to use. Using a pen to draw is a little more challenging than using a pencil, because you aren’t allowed to go wrong when you use a pen:)! In this sketch you can see Gandhiji sitting behind a spinning wheel or charkha, reading from some papers that he holds in his right hand.
A few months ago, I had drawn this caricature of Ben Kingsley as Mahatma Gandhi – Just in case, you haven’t seen it:)
That’s all for today…now I can go back to enjoying my holiday:)
