It was a blast from CWA @ Mamallapuram today!
Our first out of city experience at a historic location.
We all gathered near Arjuna penance around 12:30 after sketching at various places. Balaji, Nithya, Kalpana, Prabha and Ashok came from five rathas. Jothi and Manavaalan came from tiger caves. Maanas and Chiranjeevi came from old light house. Murali, Francis, Alok and Kirthana came from Shore Temple. Ashwini, Suresh, Venky and four students (from Anna university and Ethiraj) were there near Ganesha ratha.. All happy happy faces with lot of satisfactions. It was really great to see all the sketches together . There were all kinds. Water color, Pen&Ink, pencil, charcoal.. Various views of monuments.
Venky briefed about 'Flashback' celebration plans. This week we shall get more pics for reference. Lets all share which pics we work in this thread without fail to avoid repetition. Check the same thread for more information about the event and plan from CWA.
Our love for the monuments continued even after lunch. I guess most of the people continued till evening. GREAT Day! We shall be repeating Mamallapuram and plan for Kanchipuram before Feb next year.
We had little issues about sketching in the ASI premises even though Manas had the permission letter. We should try to use that next time. (We shall get permission for CWA group sooner).
