The Copycat Returns With Two Elephants

What do you get when you are at ease with copying masterpieces?

A homemade and affordable way of having two of Husain’s famous Ganesha paintings. After doing Saraswati a few days ago, I wanted to paint (okay, copy!) Ganeshas. These are my first set of Ganeshas, if I don’t account for the one done on handmade paper and charcoal when I was a teenager. And that was an original!

IMG_6046Waxing on about Husain twice in a week is just weird, right? Especially when there is so much controversy surrounding him…
ndtv husainBut my thick head doesn’t get any of that! Never will.
My brain can be very lame sometimes, especially when it wins.
