twenty minute challenge entry - Morning Smiles



I have started the practise of doing a painting on any subject within 20 mins ... i got the idea for this from Kathrine .

Madikeri

Some rough sketches of Madikeri - district headquarters of Coorg. I remember a rather muddy town, with frequent showers, a little overcrowded with tourists , a center of a beautiful district - but not that enchanting in itself ... And as i spent one rainy day walking around some sights caught my fancy ... I hummmed 'Hill Station' songs , got wet and bought coffee, cardamom, chocolate flavored tea, Lemon Oil and some wine ...





This is a place in the town called Raja's Tomb , where King Dodda Vira Raja, his wife and son Lingarajendra (not too sure) have been laid to rest. The tombs built are in the Islamic style.

Floating Papers ...


Been having an artist's block off late so not been painting ... was looking through my old stuff and came across this ... a narcissistic trip ( after all my paintings are my weak spot :D) ... More sketches coming up in a day or two though ... so this is a rather late goodbye to 2009 and a recap before i begin posting this year's work ...
