Most of my time around Bangalore is spent with my nieces, hanging out at home, and letting the kids run loose all over the apartment complex. They love it! Such a change from being policed by a parent all the time. Sometimes I hung out with them while they played and sketched- This is Nishant and Kavya playing in the sandbox.
A quick sketch of a grouping of palms. Apartment in the background.
Colorful stuff around the apartment. I didn’t draw the walls, which are mango and lime green in color, and a fantastic backdrop to the pieces. Such a happy apartment!
More sketches while the kids play: I am upstairs in the balcony, sketching with a cup of chai. The are downstairs playing while a gardener slowly weeds the lawn.
Mochi (cobbler) at his shack on the sidewalk. Nice 3-finger stripey patterns on the inside of his shack. That was fun to paint in watercolor! Dust-colored everything.
4th Block, Jayanagar. Vegetable market. The blue tarp cast a beautiful light over the scene.
