Step by step guide to pencil sketching

Pencil sketching!!

Most of you wanted to know how I do pencil sketching and which colors I use and whats my technique..!! So, here in this post I will be sharing  the steps to sketch a beautiful flower with every step involved. My favorite pencil colors are Staedtler ones and crayola by Funskool 😀

The very first thing while making a drawing is to pick the pencils which you will be using ,it must be sharped properly and also your hand should work on very lightly.. <3 (I use Camlin supreme drawing pencils :P) so that if you have to rub a part of it, it will not leave an impression on the sheet. Try to use thick drawing sheet which has a texture at the back and smooth front!!

First always try to make a rough drawing so that alterations can be done when you are doing the shading or while final touch.

First step

Now choose a part you want to get started with. I always start with outer boundary.

In the case of this flower, the most important thing should be the outline of the flower, It should also comprise of different shades.

Always hold the different shades of color in one hand and then start doing!! It will give you some positive vibes seeing soo many shades ( I get :P)

So lets get started with second step of coloring!! EXCITED!!

A red color outline and then started shading with yellow color and shades of red. The pencil should work on dark at the corner and while going on in between, light shades should be there so that mixing can be done properly!! In shading the second color should overlap the first color so that the perfect shade can be obtained.

Quick tip: For shading your pencil should not be sharped, because blunt gives the best effect!! (My tip)

Step by step coloring I’ll be showing here!! Let’s have a look 🙂

Step 2

Step 1

Here the outline is clearly visible and the overlapping of yellow and red shades also.

Step 3

In this pic the shades are completely visible. To give a petal effect, some lines also are made which can be properly seen in the above pic. These lines are given at the end when you get completely satisfied with the shades.

Step 4

Step 4

It is not necessary to only use red and yellow, I have given deep brown outline to reveal the originality of flower.

Step 5

step 5

Towards the completion of the flower!! The shades should be in proper direction so that the originality of flower doesn’t go away.

Step 6


Now this flower is almost complete.. shades towards the inner side are being done.

Time to look for complete flower <3 EXCITED!! You will feel even more excited when you will trying this yourself.. Being an artist that happiness can’t be described.

 Step 8-Complete Flower

Complete flower

The shades and the stroke of the pencil is clearly visible here!! Now Its time to complete the leaves because every flower is incomplete without the leaves.

Step 9

how to make a flower

Started with the outline of leaf.. different shades which I have used here are clearly visible.. I have used all different shades of green, yellowish look and a bit of blue color for mixing purpose!!

Step 10

Kopal sketching guide

Now I just used the required colors to give a leafy look and the outline took all the credit 😛 so you might now know the importance of shading effects given to outline.

Step 11

Pencil Sketching guide

Again the same basic rule is followed up!! Outline with shades. Here I have used blue shade in between to give a deep effect in leaves.Once completed then only difference can be seen.

Step 12

Pencil Sketching guide

I just added some more colors and because my outline was perfect, wasn’t a need to do more!!

Step 13

Pencil Sketching

Now we will be moving towards the completion of the flower.. this small leaf can also be done in the same way..

Complete flower <3

Della Adventures, Adlabs Imagica Review – Lonavala Trip 2016

As promised, here I am with my second post sharing all the experiences of an adventurous trip that I had recently. Yes I am talking about my trip to Lonavala.  A place which I visited and loved!!

So in this post I’ll be sharing;

  • My Hotel Experience at Della Resort
  • My visit to Della Adventure theme park
  • My adventures at Adlabs Imagica
  • My stay at Hotel Sahara Star

Lets get started 🙂

My Experience at Della Resorts

So after a 2 hour flight from Bhopal to Mumbai, we straight away took a cab for lonavala. I must say that Pune-Bombay express highway is quite beautiful. I was amazed to see the beauty of nature along the highway. Loved it !! 😀

Once we reached our destination, we directly checked in to Della Resorts. From the entrance itself, I just loved everything about the place.

Della Resorts

We booked our room in Luxury Resorts, which was quite beautiful. Here’s a picture around which Luxury resorts were there.

By the way there are 5 types of accommodation that you can choose from:

  1. Luxury Resorts
  2. Della Suites
  3. Camp Della Resort
  4. Della Adventure Resort
  5. Presidential Suite

However, No matter what you book, the view outside will always fresh up your mind. Another thing that I enjoyed out there was, clicking photographs 😛 . There are lots of beautiful views that you can capture.

Well the next morning was very refreshing. A simple morning walk in the lap of nature, bare foot on fresh green grass will make your day fully energetic.

The breakfast was so tempting with all sort of yummilious dishes, served on the most beautiful fashion.

The hospitality you receive will make your heart go happy!! The most tempting sweet dish I ate was strawberry rabdi!! Let me share a pic of it 😉 mouth watering 😉 Isn’t it ???

 strawberry rabdi

Time for Della Adventures 🙂

It was time for some adventures 🙂 and being an adventurous girl, I had the courage to try on the most difficult and dangerous adventures that Della offered us.

The best of all which I did was the Rocket ejector!! I did somersault 5-6 times at a height of about 4 and a half floors!! 😀

Apart from the ejector, I also tried:

  • Trikke
  • Zip line
  • Archery
  • Della Hover Board
  • Wall Climbing
  • Rope Challenges
  • and many more 😛 Can’t remember the names now!!

It was a great fun !!

So, This adventure park is not just meant for kids or teenagers but it is for all age groups and everyone can enjoy here to the fullest!! Here’s a pic of me with my cute brother Keshav. <3 

i love della adventures

Yes!! I loved Della Adventure

Here are few more snaps that I clicked. 🙂


Now after enjoying the whole day in Della adventure park, we enjoyed the night view of resort and had a delicious dinner in a restaurant!! The restaurant is situated at a location where we can have great view of the pool.

Have a look at some pics of the restaurant 🙂

A lot is there for you to try at the restaurant as well. After a complete dinner, a Della van took us back to camp della !! The ride was really a fun. 🙂

Apart from the resort, let me tell you something about Lonavala !! Well Lonavala is a beautiful hill station and is famous for its chikkis and jelly toffees. (Yeah I love them 😉 ). You can also try visiting Lion’s point, Pavana Lake, Lohagad fort and Ekvira Devi  Temple.

ADLABS IMAGICA – A place full of Excitements


Since I was on a 2 day trip to Lonavala, I had enough time to visit Adlabs Imagica, which I can never forget !! Oh boy, it was one hell of an experience.

So if you are visiting lonavala too, I will recommend you to visit this place. Its located nearby Khopoli is very famous for its rides.

Entering into the gate will make you feel wow since the decoration is really beautiful and you start seeing various rides that awaits at your footstep.

My first ride was the most craziest !! Yeah I am talking about the Roller coaster ride. I was quite afriad to see it, but I had this craze to go into it and that’s what I did. My heartbeats raced so fast before the start, but once the ride started it was so amazing !! Ahh feels so great recalling that ride. 🙂 And guess what, once I was done with it !! I wanted to go again into the same roller coaster, such was the fun I had.

If you are planning a visit to imagica, mark a Roller Coaster ride on top of your checklist !! Beleive me, you will have a really cool experience.

Next was the scream machine !! The name says it all 😛 It was again a ride I loved a lot. The view you get inside the scream machine is so beautiful, with you revolving and moving upto 180 degree, you can see all the beauty of Imagica in a really cool fashion.

And then, I was shot up to the sky 😛 !! Just joking, I am talking about my next ride which was Dare2Drop !! This one was a difficult one for me, it shoots you to the sky so fast that you seriosuly get all those odd feelings, but after few seconds of it, you will really enjoy it.

Another roller coaster was the gold rush but was not that scary!! A movie was also shown there covering the dome showing the sky and the stars.

Well there were many many rides, the ones I mentioned are those which I personally had an experience with. Also to mention that, there are many rides which are for children !! So if you come with your child, they can have a great experience as well. I bet your inside kid will be out in imagica seeing Alibaba aur chaalis chor fort. You can also buy Imagica caps, T-shirt and goodies from the shops located throughout Imagica. 🙂


That was my experience at Imagica 😉 !! Have a look at some images I captured. Well the pics must really bring up some craze inside you about visiting this place.


This  is the entrance of the imagica!! Full of excitement!! Whoooaaaaaaaaa!!!!

imagica lonavala entrance

Again a beautiful from inside.. I really loved the view!!


I did enjoyed every ride in imagica and didn’t left a single one!! It took me around full day to enjoy all the rides and didn’t went to water park because  was enjoying the theme park all day long, from around 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

My Last Destination – BOMBAY the city of Dreams

After having loads of fun at lonavala, we next got back to Mumbai !! We had a full day in hand before our departure from Mumbai to Bhopal.

So the Film city of India, Bombay!! <3 In Bombay you can start your day from Siddhi Vinayak Ganesha Temple and end up shopping at the streets!!

It is a city where you can roam and enjoy all day long. We traveled to various markets of Mumbai and I bought quite a few things for myself (yeah I love shopping 😛 )

I along with my family stayed at Hotel Sahara Star. Here are some beautiful images that I captured inside the hotel. Let me just add up the gallery so that you can view the pics easily. 🙂


  • Some antique things in the hotel!!
  • Some views from the hotel!!

So how was it ?? For me it was an adventurous trip with lots of fun and experiences. I will surely visit this place again !! writing this post just made me relive the moement and I am now eager to visit Lonavala once again.

A lot of images and a short review of my trip !! Did you like it ?? Well I am always open to suggestions through comment box. 🙂

Beautiful Bird – Explosion of Colors

Kopal Khandelwal Bird

A bird that has all the colors in it, the main thing that has to be kept in mind is the direction in which the shades are to be given and also the color combination should be according to the need. Do you guys like it ?? Be honest !!

And yee, I have framed my sketch. 🙂


Chowki – A tradional Artwork

Most of you guys must be knowing what a Chowk is. Right ?? Well its just a low wooden seat or stool on which you can place any idol or statue or just a flower vase. So here’s what I made.

Image 3

This is my work which is done with the help of paper mache and certain kundans. To give it a more luxury look I have put a 12 mm glass on top of it. This is multipurpose for a flower vase or any idol or just for.

So what are your words on it ??


A Simple Canvas Art

Iimage 5

This is a three piece canvas of tribal art. This looks elegant and is easy to make but the fact remains the same, your hands need to perfect in giving the curves. The base is made first and then with the help of black color, painting is done. I have used camlin tube colors in this.

One of My Favorite – Mural Art

kopal khandelwal Mural art

This is a wooden mural, the base is made out of 4 MDF boards attached with two horizontal lines at the back. I have used sea shells and stones here to give an original look and also the color combination is perfect to make it look eye catching.

A Flower with Some Detailing

This is my best pencil sketch till now. I have tried to give it a original look with water droplets. The color combination and the shades are need to be purely perfect in this and the same thing, direction should be proper in all. It is just the half flower may call it a artistic mind.
