Another trip to Chennai

This is a late update. Have been busy with my stopmotion project. Unusually busy. But I've been wanting to write about my second trip to Chennai which happened quite a while back as I went to my sister's to chill. As much as I found the place strange earlier; I couldn't help but love the flavorsome city. There was too much to do, and me falling sick was trying to make it worse. I thankfully recovered, but only at the end of the trip. The place where they lived was absolutely beautiful. Right next to a hill with a shrine on top of it. The wind, the 'fruit shop', the beach. There was too much to take in. All put together in a lovely coconut that Chennai is. My sister has now shifted to Bangalore; and we will miss the city, always.
Here are some of the sketches I did there with my brush pen.

A shady couple on the beach:)

My brother-in-law and my sister at the beach.

My sister at home switching from channel to channel; an age old habit.

A construction happening somewhere on the hilltop shrine.

People praying as I shamelessly sketch.

More people and a lot of wind. And a couple.

I follow a couple in the dark as I try to draw them while walking.

And some more of my favorite thing to draw, people.

What a lovely experience. Made possible by my sister and her husband. Thanks. A lot:)

these are great!
I love the rough dry brush like stroke you do your linework with, it gives your sketches a printed look like Hokusais prints.
Keep it up!

Tomás Serrano said...

This is a fantastic work!!! Is it a live work or you made from photograhs?

Kaveri-on-the-moon said...

Simple that it is, my eyes are drawn toward the feel of the first sketch of the couple.It captures the blue evening and the brown beach and tinny music playing from a radio somewhere down the shore.
Or perhaps it just makes one miss Chennai.:)
