the month of december in india is best for outdoor painting.it has just the right amount of chill in the air,with blue skies and warm sunlight.Its a pleasure to sit in the sun and paint in the month of december.I did two outdoor sessions last two weeks .i am posting some results of those sunny days.

I am not posting regularly on the blog,as there are more visible sites like facebook and urban sketchers etc.i have decided to post only the travel sketches or paintings on the blog,as every week posting becomes repitative.i hope all understand this.I visited Istanbul on the way back from my participation in biennale du carnet de voyage at clermont ferrand,france.I am posting some sketches done during my 2 day stay in istanbul,turkey.

last week i visited shanghai expo 2010,i did some fast graphical sketches as i ahad no time for proper paintings . A simple black pen and small pad becomes handy in such situations.Drawing any building makes one look at the structure carefully,hence observation becomes important!!..
Shanghai expo has about 200 countries having pavelions ,showcasing their technological and cultural progress.It was fun visiting some of these country cases.

I am in a mood of experimental painting.Since these are rainy days here in my hometown pune, i decided to use watercolour fluidity to its maximum,and the result i am showing in this post. All these paintings are done on the spot.they are not the copies of the spot,but the inspiration from the spot is w hat i have tried to capture.
