This painting, (oil on canvas) is the first one of a series of three. This was commissioned me from a very old, very ancient temple in Vrindavan India, called Radha Damodara. I did it pro-bono and they actually only needed a print.  Two more paintings will follow this one. I am just making the sketch for the next one. 
However, the sketch stage is very important for each artwork. 
                                                      Here is the sketch for this painting:
 

In this composition, the eyes goes directly in the middle of the picture. The composition is square. This is not my choice. A square composition is difficult and unusual. But this composition was requested by my client. The tree and Mahaprabhu are the center of the picture. However, I displaced the tree a bit so it does not look like it is growing out of Mahaprabhu's head, obviously. Further, in the final artwork the tree is faded and Mahapabhu sharper. ( See the final painting above).

This artwork takes its inspiration from Indian style artworks. Since I was doing the painting  for a renown Indian temple, I used the classical Indian style. Those Indian artists who paint in that style usually use water color as their medium, but some of the artists used oils too. 

Below I am showing you two examples of this kind of art form:

   

This a painting by B.G. Sharma executed in water colors and very fine pigments.

This a painting by Raja Ravi Varma executed in oils. Raja means king and yes, this artist was also a king.
Those two artists are very famous indian artists.

Now I am going to show you details of my own painting 
"Mahaprabhu In Vrindavan":
