Went to JM Road walking plaza today morning with Pune Urban Sketchers. Deliberately left the colors at home. Today was noir day :-).
Cafe Good Luck is a landmark in Pune, I Dia since 1935. It’s one of the last few Iranian cafes remaining in the even evolving city. Today morning did a sketch session with Pune Urban Sketchers@ GoodLuck
On Sunday, I traveled to the towns of Wai and Menawali with Pune Urban Sketchers. It was an absolute blast. Wai Ghat (riverfront) accompanied by the temple is absolutely stunning.
I managed to do 3 sketches at Wai. After that we traveled to nearby village of Menawali. It’s home to the ancestral house of Nana Fadanvis, one of the most influential diplomat in the Maratha Empire in the 18th century. I completed 2 sketches (both involving old doors) near the house.
Both these locations are sketchers’ paradise, and all 40 of us came back home in the night with very sore hands, and very high spirits!

I first visited this western music themed cafe in Vimannagar, Pune last week. From the moment I saw its interesting interior, I knew I had to sketch it. So I visited it again yesterday, with a sketchbook and drawing materials. Here’s the result!
Omkareshwar Temple, Pune. A view of part of the temple complex from the nearby river,
Today Morning with Pune Urban Sketchers – Vruddheshwar-Siddheshwar Temple at Pune. This is one of the rare temples where two idols of the same deity are kept within the same temple premises.
