Moody Blues

"And far into the night he crooned that tune.
The stars went out and so did the moon.
The singer stopped playing and went to bed
While the Weary Blues echoed through his head.
He slept like a rock or a man that’s dead."
Langston Hughes

At Chilika Lake, Orissa.

Wall Art

Have always wanted to paint on a wall; free hand. Happy with the first draft of work done as part of a plan to create a small studio space.

Travel Sketching in Hampi

Hampi has been on my travel list for ages and finally exploring the city was simply exhilarating. It was like walking through history ... chapters of "Discovery of India" coming alive as I walked down the lanes. The landscape is rocky, with stone structures every few furlongs. Stories on stones ... Rama, Ravana, Hanumana, and Sita; the Pandavas and Kauravas; gods and goddesses; or mere mortals with very human emotions - all brought alive on stone hundreds of years ago.

Sketching at Sakleshpur

These sketches were done during a recent trip to Sakleshpur, where I was put up at MakkiThitta home-stay. The picturesque estate, with its low lying hills, grassland, clear stream, and host of birds is a perfect place for soaking in the beauty of nature.
