Small temple at the crossroads

A few days ago, I came across this charming little temple at the crossroads while in the old city area.

Glimpses of Konkan Through My Sketchbook

I spent the last 5 days in Konkan, the beautiful coastal area of the Maharashtra state where I reside. It was a different world, with endless scenic vistas, rustic life in villages, and best of all .. no cell phone coverage!

These are some of the glimpses of Konkan through my sketchbook.

Tree covered building in Fergusson college campus

Today was my second outing with Pune Urban Sketchers group, once again in Fergusson college campus.

Today I sat on the steps outside one of the classrooms, and drew this sketch of this building opposite. This building was heavily covered in shrubbery and trees. So the main challenge was to show enough of the building through the trees, but at the same time keeping it covered with foliage. Had a lot of fun with this.

Drawn on paper with Brustro pens, various sizes. Total drawing time – 1 hour 15 mins.
