Paper Quilling: Portrait of Shivaji Maharaj

There was a request to make Shivaji Maharaj in Quilling, but was asked to add any colour instead of black. So, I have used orange colour for the dress and cap. I have used 3mm quilling strips. Also used Gold pen to give extra glow to edges of orange strips. To give a real effect added white pearls to the cap (had used tight coils earlier) and ring.

This portrait of Shivaji Maharaj has come out well. But the first one will be always close to the heart.

Please feel free to contribute and suggest any of your ideas. Your suggestion and comments will always be welcome. Hope you enjoy my blog.
