Amir Hossein and stranger

I met this young chap and the man on top in a train returning from Hashgerd to Tehran in a day in last August. he sat right across me, and I was busy sketching the guy taking nap next to him. While he was curious to see what I was doing, I showed him the quick finished sketch and suggested to do one from him as well. he was wise and nice enough to sit still in order I finish his sketch in a very short time left to get off the train.

Arezoo, the girl who I know her from the very early years of her childhood been my favorite model. Though, i didn't have a chance to sketch or paint her live, I have made several portrate and figurative of her. This is what i made it from a photo that i took of her with different composition.

Girles in sea side

The original of this sketch has published in one of the latest books of Ch. Reid watercolorist. I liked the setting and simple washes of the bodies.

seated nude

I like this pastel work very much. Why ? bcause I spent quite some time to do the shadows with soft pastel pencil. also I resisted hard not to overwork and leave it as it looked.


I had the image of this girl in standing position.I seated her in a seaside setting.


I did this image inwatercolorand pastel with some changes in colors and composition. Painting from photos is fun and good when you don't have live model at hand. Of course it isbeer to do some changes according to your tase and talent to the original composition.
