Namdorling Monastery

This sketch was done in Feb 2015, when I had gone to Bylakuppe for 10days solo trip. Took me an hour and a half. Had found solace in that solitude.

  • magnificent !
  • Superb! I have been to this monastery and you have captured the colour, the scale, and the imposing character of the place extremely well.

  • Beautiful colours and details of the monastery interiors.

  • Great attitude in taking it to completion on the spot of such a complex composition!

  • Thankss a lot friends for the kind words. It motivates a lot. :)
  • This is beautiful!! Love everything about it, colors are just perfect!

  • Awsome !, It almost takes me there...

  • Love the details, also you have got the scale of the great hall with the monks sitting really well.  Congratulations.

  • Thanks for the observation and the motivational word George. The coloring was done later. Coz the monastery was closing. Thankfully they gave me a permission to sit inside and finish the sketching quietly.

  • Wow!! Breathtaking detail and such skill! I love how you've plonked me right within the composition. Did you colour it on location as well?
