That’s me at my best sharing a few jokes over a wonderful cup of  hot tea and coffee in the rain with dripping water drops that halted our work for a while contributing to this ‘break’ giving us a chance to get to know each other more closely.

Trip to Pirana

Piranha : A little village on the outskirts of Ahmedabad

An ideal place for a sketching tour

Birds, Animals, Nature and little houses… !

notice the dragonfly…

The village Life

We went to a village called pirana 16 kms from ahmedabad on a sketching trip , the place has a mandir and a masjid in the same premises , it is an excellent example of religious co-existence . a few kms ahead there was another village which seemed nice and quiet. we made about 5 or 6 perspective sketches of the narrow lanes and houses at interesting angles . Observing people and things around opens up my mind to new thoughts and ideas. i took photographs of some birds in the area as well.

Whether I’m painting or not, I have this overweening interest in humanity. Even if I’m not working, I’m still analyzing people.

Sketching trip

Sketching : A great visual thinking tool

Everyday life on the streets through the eye of an artist 

It’s all about the line and form ! 


dog sketch, kankaria, pencil drawing, quick sketch, street dogs
kankaria, pencil drawing, quick sketch, girl and child

The installation project had kept us busy for quite a few days and finally it was time to get back to work , but for a change and to unwind we decided to go to kankaria lake for a sketching trip. We were instantly surrounded by about 12 children( we later discovered they were all from the same family wow! ). It was great making a family portrait for them and to see them beaming when they saw the sketches. Arpit sketched a few more children on the lake front , A dog snoozing in the busy street corner like it didn’t care at all about what was happening around it or how much noise there was caught my attention..actually i always find the stray dogs interesting subjects. . we got hold of a flute seller and  then met two families who showed interest in our work and a young girl asked us portray her. we gave her the sketches which made her so happy . looking at that a begger child posed for us with her little brother and finally as we were leaving she ran after us screaming ” aae manne mari parchi de” … She wanted to keep the Paper.

Most artists i know started their careers doodling in notebooks or drawing away in the middle of lectures at college.  It is in fact a great way to capture an idea or to make a note of what you want to paint later, even the most basic of sketches work wonders when trying to communicate an idea.
they help explore possibilities or workability of ideas and are a handy reference.

Art Quote :

‘To draw does not simply mean to reproduce contours; the drawing does not simply consist in the idea: the drawing is even the expression, the interior form, the plan, the model. Look what remains after that! The drawing is three fourths and a half of what constitutes painting. If I had to put a sign over my door [to the atelier], I would write: School of drawing, and I’m certain that I would create painters.’ – Ingres
