This outline tree painting made by the artist Prakash Ku Meher. This is totally free hand drawing. This outline fine work painting took near about 2 months to complete it. Because every line & stroke of painting has to control by single breath and also it maintains the symmetric method in work. If one line/stroke having mistaken then whole painting going to spoil, so it has to make it very carefully. Another important point is that every stroke was without any pencil drawing only done by memory, so it is very difficult to do the complete the above painting work.
