Post cards from Coonoor

I know I was supposed to post Muvattupuzah - III in this post. But after returning from a beautiful and serene place like Coonoor I had to post a few sketches I did there. Actually the wikipedia link here really does not do justice in telling you how beautiful a place Coonoor is. 

I was there in Coonoor to attend a friend's wedding and meet old friends. I really had a whale of time there. And in between all that I managed a few WC sketches. Hope you enjoy these. Muattupuzah - III will have to wait till the next post. :)

Muvattupuzah - II

Here is the second painting of my Muvattupuzah series. Its the painting of the same place as in the first painting, but from a different angle. In the last painting I had blown up the house a little bit to show off the tiled roof, but in this I have scaled it down a little bit to make the figures noticeable. Artistic license you see. :)

Hope you enjoy this one. I am off to my next one in the series. Have a great week.

Muvattupuzah - I

My next series is going to be on this quaint place in Kerala called Muvattupuzah. Its a small hilly town with 5 rivers (though I got to see only one), lots of vegetation and beautiful people. I was smitten by this place. So series on Hampi will have to wait. :)

Sketches from Hampi

Last weekend I visited Hampi. It was 3 days full of bliss. I manged to do a few sketches while I was soaking in all that peace and beauty. I hope you like them. And if you get a chance just go to Hampi and spend a few days there. be sure to stay on the other side of the river Tungabhadra. I am sure you'll love the Hampi experience.
