Today morning we at Pune Urban Sketchers did our weekly sketchcrawl at Main Street and MG road, Cantonment area.
This smallish junction visible in the picture is in fact a very busy area. It was relatively less maddening today due to Sunday early morning.
Done with pen, inks, watercolors and watercolor pencils.

These are few village huts from Ankola, Karnataka, India. Tried a different combo of Acrylics and Pigma micron pens on canvas (A4 size). Done off a photo shared by a fellow Urban Sketcher, Ramnath Bhat.
Since some acrylic paint was left, I practiced a bit using them on handmade paper. This is a “trash polka” style tatoo design which I saw on net and copied.
This pen,inks and watercolros sketch is done off a photo shared by Ramnath Bhat, a friend from Urban Sketchers group. This is from a place called Zambavali in Goa.
Sometimes, unpleasant situations present an unexpected opportunity. Last week, I was stuck in a traffic jam when I noticed these abandoned vehicles lying on the roadside, about 20 meters from me.
Thanks to the traffic jam, I could take some photos using my cellphone cam. Completed this sketch today. Done using pen, inks and watercolors.
