Seldom does one get the chance to bump into India’s 1st Cricket World Cup winning captain, Kapil Dev. And when you do, despite the 6am flight on a Sunday, you take a selfie and attempt a sketch to gift him (met him a couple of days after his birthday). Of course, made another sketch to store the autograph. To the man who ensured India remembers the year 1983, thank you Sir for the memories and inspiration!
A leaf might fall, but it can still add life. It may snow outside, but life can still have colour. Basically just an excuse to paint since finals are over 🙂 Acrylic paints on what’s probably a London Planetree leaf fallen on HBS campus. #LifeAtHBS #SnowAtHBS #BakerLibrary
Was lucky to have breakfast at Dean Nohria’s via a lottery system. Was luckier to manage to sketch him in the morning and gift it at his home. And of course, have a click together! Hopefully it’ll get added to his “art” collection! #lifeathbs
It’s been 100 years since Bharat Ratna MS Subbulakshmi was born but her voice seems like it’s been there since time immemorial. I always regret not being able to appreciate Carnatic music in its full glory but I can at least attempt to appreciate this stalwart and connoisseur of Carnatic music by sketching her in ink and water (with a slight mix of graphite). Just in time before it moves past her birth centenary in USA!
Applying Prisma filters to digital photographs is getting mainstream. Attempted to convert a Prisma image to Water colour instead, of the cricketer who remained a purist in an era of switch hits and is of course my favourite cricketer of all time – Rahul Dravid. Reference – file photo of Dravid taken at the ICC 2002 awards where he was the ICC Player of the Year and ICC Test Player of the year.
Year 2 at HBS begins tomorrow. 2 things have not changed over the last 12 months – my issues with punctuality, hence a delayed effort for #Janmashtami celebrations (Krishna’s birthday) and my attempt to create a water colour art on the eve of the academic year. Here, #Krishna is miraculously holding the #Govardhan mountain with his little finger amist a thunderstorm. It earned him the name #Giridhari and there are a lot of symbolic references in this event, but I shall skip them. Hope to make the most of the coming year! #Vamos
