WDC @ Venkatappa Art Gallery 21 July 2013

The rain behaved well today and lots of us gathered in and around the government museum and the sheltered canteen area.

Sculptures, Trees, Different perspectives of the bright red museum building and the towering UB city building were some sketch subjects today.

Lots of old time regulars turned up, and the perennial autorickshaw at the museum was there too.

Please share your sketches from todays jam in this thread. Thanks!

  • went for sunday morning sketching yesterday after a long time and it always feels good. though the sketching location was at Government Museum, Kasturba Gandhi Marg, Bangalore, which itself is a beautiful architectural element, i decided to capture the distant modern architecture of the UB City mall. i personally am not very much fond of modern architecture, however i found this view interesting with the top of the highrise building rising above the lush green trees on a windy and gloomy day where the sun was playing hide in seek all the time.

    this is the 2nd sketch i did that day, i am not sure what is called but it has beautiful volumetric motif on the surface of the huge red vase and there are two goat faces facing opposite. its kind of glows under the sun with dark foliage behind! tried again using a brown packaging paper with water color and white gouache [poster color] and it sure is fun!
