During the lockdown period, when most of the people were sitting idle at home, a few like Vikas Joshi made the best use of the spare time and rediscovered their hidden talent.

His oil painting “Parineeti” is not just appreciated by many but it gave Joshi, a businessman by profession, a sense of satisfaction and happiness.

Joshi’s work was recently appreciated by the India Book of Records also. “It was a difficult phase for all. We all were feeling low, scared and depressed sitting at home. I thought of starting with this oil painting. It took over five months to complete this work but hard work paid at last when it was recently recognised by India Book of World Records,” says Joshi.

In the particular painting, a little girl is wearing a sweater and about 4,000 knits in the sweater, are oil painted by the artist to give it a realistic look.
