Most of the figurative artists experience that the beauty is beyond the figure of a model. This leads an artist to infuse his or her ideas of beauty to ascribe to the model first; and then to paint the same on a canvas. This is the reason why the eyes of viewers looking at that painting would find something ‘body plus' in it. A figurative painting is not the photocopy of a model that had been before the artist while he put the colours on canvas. The artists add the element of beauty through the artistic endeavours.

It was the period where I was uncertain about the way I would travel on and the manner I would conduct my life. Nor I had thought about being an artist, when I was running in my rough twenties. But one thing was certain I liked the figurative paintings most. I liked to look at the sensual skin painted by Raphael and Renoir. But my favourite was William Bouguereau; I was wondering about the impossibility of painting such photo-realistic paintings of cloth-less women.
