A Century yet Eternal

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!

Prisma to Water Colour

160910-rd-prisma-to-water-color

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.

Back to school v2.0

160829 Giridhari

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

 

 

Who says you can’t do art in business formals?

Charcoal taj on wall

“Who says you can’t do art in business formals?” – The MINT gallery in Atlanta was moving from its current home and opened their walls to people for a day to create something. Rushed from an official visit (hence the formals) and decided to leave behind something Indian – what better image than the Taj. Sketched in 15 min with whatever little charcoal and wall-space was left at the gallery, but with much more love for my country 🙂

A new home

150823 Baker Lib

A new chapter in my life begins at the Harvard Business School (HBS). Thought I should spend a Sunday by experimenting with some water colours (oops water colors as they spell it in ‘Murica). What better option than the iconic Baker Library which has been representative of what HBS stands for! Oh and there are a lot of bunnies roaming around on campus. Thought I’d feature one of them as well. After all the talks of “inclusion” in our day to day lives, why must they be left out 🙂
