Various portraits done this month – all with oil on canvas
A self-portrait done with a combination of two mirrors, looking at myself in profile view. It’s a surreal experience!

I was recently in Krabi, Thailand for a dive trip. It was as much a sketching trip as a dive trip. The sketching, apart from pure joy of sketching, had an additional benefit of connecting with many people on a creative level.
I started with these sketches in the plane from Mumbai to Bangkok and then to Krabi.
I did these random sketches of some strangers and gave them away for free. People had a hard time accepting that I was giving them away for free. But eventually they came around 🙂
I did some interesting sketches of the Ao Nang street and beach, near to where I was staying

A quick 20 mins sketch of the Kalyan Darvaja at the Sinhagad Fort, Pune today morning.
The area I stay in has many ancient forts situated in the rugged Sayhadri mountain range. Many of them are less than 4-5 hours drive from my city, and Sinhagad (literal meaning “The Lion Fort) is less than an hour’s drive. They were used till early 19th century as defenses and command & control centers for armies.
This sketch is of an entrance to the fort preceded by a steep climb over rocky steps. I can only imagine the plight of the soldiers charging up this formidable defense for the fort.
One of the more satisfying artworks done in oils. A commissioned piece, 36″ X 24″, oils on stretched canvas.
