Early morning sketch

Mixed Media on Paper

This is a sketch of another scene from Jodhpur! It was early morning (hence the closed shutters!) and I was out to capture some early morning shots. Liked this scene on my way back to the hotel.
I have used pen, little washes of watercolor here and there and opaque for the sky and the highlights on a brown tinted paper.

"Wish you all a very happy and safe Diwali"

Mixed Media on Paper ( 15" x 20" )

This is a scene of Jodhpur in Rajasthan. Most houses in the old part of the city are painted blue. But some people also choose to color their houses differently like this building, a beautiful green which was so attractive and to complement it, there was a bike parked against its wall!

Bullock Cart WIP

Watercolor on Paper ( 12" x 16" )

Bullock carts are very common in my town.They are used for carrying goods from the shops to the transport offices.When I see them pulling such heavy loads ( sometimes upto 1.5 tonnes or maybe more! ) I feel pity for them. Times are changing, though. Now they are being replaced gradually by three wheeler pick ups. But there's a downside here too! Traffic congestions and increased pollution!
