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
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
When Pikachu visit HBS, even the Bunnies and Squirrels sit up and take notice. #PokemonsOfHBS #LifeAtHBS #BunniesOfHBS #PokemonGo
“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 🙂
Since I don’t have the colours, I’ll make do with these water colours – sketchy attempt to relive some spring break memories from Cartagena with a dash of holi “celebrations” before it’s officially past Holi!
(For my non Indian friends, Holi is the Festival of colours in India – is awesome fun when enjoyed responsibly and of course in much warmer weather :))
Wish you all a Happy Holi!
