Post by Prabha » Sat Jul 31, 2010 12:34 pm

Sketchcrawling was fun this time in and around Cubbon Park. We began after 10 am and continued till 2 pm. A gang of four, Aparajita, Bhanupriya, Suma and Prabha explored the periphery of Cubbon Park with their pencils. A few of the sketches i did are shown below:

Superb water color works Prabha!
Brilliant strokes Aparajitha!

Somehow I thought it is Sunday and I could not participate today.
I will continue the sketch crawl at the same place (Cubbon park) tomorrow (1st Aug 2010).
Interested, meet me near victoria status at Cubbon park by 11am.

Bangalore Part 2, India (result)

Post by somsesh » Sat Jul 31, 2010 4:38 pm

This was my second sketchcrawl. The place and the company had changed from the previous one. This time, I was in Bangalore with the company of my friend Varun Dhanda. I love drawing old buildings. On the very famous Brigade road stands an old Opera house with its vintage memoirs. It had to be sketched and today was the day for it. There was a van that parked right in front while I was busy sketching. It delayed and frustrated me quite a bit. But, I was glad to have it in my sketch book. Who knows...in a few years, you may find a glass walled mall standing there. Reminds me of a line from this movie "Everything is illuminated" -
Lista: In case someone should come searching one day.
Alex: So they would have something to find.
Lista: No, it does not exist for you. You exist for it. You have come because it exists.

We moved to St. Marks Road, where exists the old 'haunted house' in words of Varun. Two old ladies used to stay here who offered paino lessons. Sadly, they got murdered brutally and the case still remains unsolved. The place is falling apart with tree roots penetrating the yellow walls. An old hillman car body lies waiting in the porch. Their was new construction work going outside the house. Drawing this place felt really good. It was almost like conserving these stories before the dust settles down on them.

After finishing the sketches, we had a nice lunch at "Ice n Spice" and decided to watch " Udaan". The movie was emotionally satisfying and complimented the day's end well. Check my blog for other sketches - http://somsesh.blogspot.com/

Somsesh,
The sketch what you hold in the picture appear smaller than the complete sketch.
Did you do two sketches?

I think only the admin can do it. Can you rename yours? Call it Part 2 of Bangalore results?
