Few more sketches done since last few days using pens, inks, watercolors, or simply watercolors.
Today morning with Pune Urban Sketchers. The session was at Mrutyunjajeshwar temple. I decided on this vantage point of an overhead pedestrian bridge. The morning shadows were a perfect opportunity for some experimentation.
Today morning at COEP, Pune, with Puen Urban Sketchers.
I pass by this dilapidated house every day on my way home from work. This is one of the houses marked for demolition. Since no one is in a hurry to demolish them, these houses are rotting and crumbling on their own. These provide excellent opportunities to study textures.
Drawn using pens, inks and watercolors.
Today I chose a higher vantage point to do my lunchtime sketch. I was sketching these bunch of taparies (roadside tea and snack stalls) from one of the muti-level car parks. 10 mins into the sketch, and there was a sudden commotion below. Anti encroachment van of the municipal corporation had arrived to act on the illegally set up stalls!
As the vendors ran helter-skelter to salvage what they could from the hands of law, the scene quickly changed. The van stayed for almost 15 mins, confiscating some goods, and leaving ruined stalls behind.
I am sure the stalls will be back in a couple of days to serve the IT professionals too much disillusioned with their office canteens!
