1o short days in India. Too short for much more than a visit to my parents in Goa. And for sketching in and around the city of Panjim, where they live. So these next few posts are just that: Sketches from the streets and markets of Goa.
And the perfect contrast to the busy milling crowds anywhere are the stray dogs who sleep peacefully through any amount of noise and chaos. They make such great models. Nothing can wake them up, and they don’t even notice when I stand right over them and sketch them.
Another common sight everywhere: the water tanker that fills up your water tank. Much of urban India suffers from water shortages, and if you’re lucky you can afford to buy water from a private company.
This is the tempo, a cousin of the auto that’s used for carrying all sorts of stuff.
And while I’m posting vehicles, here is a Royal Enfield, a beautiful Indian motorcycle.
And another Indian classic, a Hero bicycle parked in a side street.
Lots more sketches from India coming soon.
