Painting India From Across the Globe

It certainly was a little strange to be sitting at home in California and painting scenes from India. But that’s what happened—twice—very recently. Both these pieces were sketched from photos I took during my travels and were done in live online sessions.

This first one is of fruit stand. The red bananas are what drew me to this scene.

And in this next one, it was the woman’s pink sari.

I love drawing in India. But I miss it when I’m away and I’m finding that pulling up a photograph from a recent visit every once in a while and sketching it is not a bad way to bring back memories. It’s not the same as being there, which is why I’m headed back in Jan 2024. Join me?

Last two seats left (for you and a friend?) on our “A Gateway to India 2024″ workshop. Read the description at the link and write in now if you want to grab those spots.
