Kalyan Darvaja – Sinhagad

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.

My 7th Art Training Course

My 7th class this year, “Draw a Boat in Water using Pens, Inks and Watercolors” is now live on Udemy.com and SkillShare.com. Here’s a sneak peek at the course.

It’s a comprehensive 2.5 hours course which includes the full process of penciling the rough sketch, inking and coloring process that I use to create these pen & ink drawings.
