In pune,india, we have started a group of enthusiastic urban sketchers.They are a mix of artists,laypeople, and many architects and designers..These sketches are done with the group today.I have started sketching more and more people along with my comfort zone of drawing buildings.I believe that observation of fellow sketchers helps a lot..so thank you all sketchers..The venue is Rukhmini pandurang mandir, karve nagar pune, india.

Its summer time in Pune, india, very hot to actually sit outdoors and paint.I prefer to do quick sketches instead.These are sketches done in 5 minutes each,just an impression of the place i visited.I have used my usual technique of black pen sketching on pre painted pages of the sketchbook,to avoid spending time while doing outdoor sketchpainting.Sharing some here

I have tried to make my sketching more challenging by an experiment which my photos will explain.I have painted few patches of colours at home.Then i have tried to match them on site for suitable composition.Many times its not matching ,but sometimes the colour and sketch go very well with each other..
The photographs show before and after sketch versions.You can decide yourself,if i have done a good job or not.One thing is sure that i enjoyed the challenge of trying to suit the partly painted abstract colour patches with reality infront of me..its a combination of abstract and reality!!
