i come from a hybrid family, im part portugeese, part english and part indian. However for this part of the competition i have chosen to research and draw my indian side.

My Mum's Great great great great .......grandma was a housewife, as in those times, ladies werent a part of the society unlike men. Bein a housewife included going to the village well and carrying pots and pots of water for cooking and bathing. coming from the south of india from a state called Madras. The caste system reinged in those days and they were part of the lower caste (which im proud of because if we didnt exist with our farms the upper caste wouldnt have food to survive on!!) . where the men were farmers and the wives helped them and also did the housework.

the time i took to do this is sorta alot for such a poor quality of work, but i was experimenting and trying different stuff and then kept undoin everything!!

Very nice!!Even this stance can be popular and fun to do portraits.--Its a more informal and often shows the culture more.
