New Delhi, India (results)

Post by somsesh » Sun May 16, 2010 9:04 pm

Hey,
For the 27th Sketchcrawl, me and my friend Samia went to Majnu Ka Tila in North Delhi area. It has a refugee colony of Tibetans and Majnu ka Tila Sahib Gurudwara. It was two different crowd around us at the two places. The tibetan one was quite peaceful with a few kids hovering around. The Gurudwara one attracted lot of attention and gave way to new conversation from all the age groups who had come there. We sketched from morning till lunch around there. The Delhi summers are extremely hot and by 1 in the afternoon, we had to leave for lunch and get some lassi.

Really like that bright blue for the sky in the second one. Nice pastel looking texture. Is it pastel or color pencil? Keep up the good work :]

These are great! I'm loving the perspective/angles in the first and last sketches. Great idea to use darker paper for the middle ones.

Superb Sketches! Glad you are exploring spaces apart from the usual lot. Even though the temperatures in the capital is soaring, you guys are real lucky to the amount of history you can sketch compared to us sketchcrawlers in Bangalore. Looking forward to your next round of sketchcrawling in July. Sketch On!
