pune university yet again..

I have tried to make my sketching more challenging by an experiment which my photos will explain.I have painted few patches of colours at home.Then i have tried to match them on site for suitable composition.Many times its not matching ,but sometimes the colour and sketch go very well with each other..





The photographs show before and after sketch versions.You can decide yourself,if i have done a good job or not.One thing is sure that i enjoyed the challenge of trying to suit the partly painted abstract colour patches with reality infront of me..its a combination of abstract and reality!!

I am always trying newer materials of drawing.Last sunday i tried a metal calligraphic pen with black printing ink for sketching.Also the exact location is not copied ,but the essence is drawn.Its almost an abstraction of the real thing.Its a minimal sketch approch..its works fine for me as i am very short on patience..
