Boat-pooling on Vembanad Lake

This is pen and ink sketch using a Reynolds Trimax gel pen and Staedtler Pigment Liners 0.05 and 0.1. It is based on a photogrpah that I took years ago. It was on an overcast day and it was also drizzling. As a result the value range was very compressed. I thought of increasing the contrast between the main subject and the background but left it for another effort.

  • Great sketch Balaji. Love the line variation between the ripples, the rain and the boat.
