I had forgotten to post this. Indian art embassy had called for submissions with the following theme: Corona and its effects on society.
There were really thousands of submissions. Some were not even accepted. I had submitted two, an acrylic painting and a sketch.
My following first acrylic did not win. Anyway, had some fun painting it.

Modified it by adding a child wearing a mask. Was supposed to look pathetic. Not sure if I can convey this in the painting.
All comments are welcome.

I think this is very good.  The child adds to it and gives it sympathy.   :clap: :clap: :clap:

Very good, I also think the child had a strong element to the topic.
