Sketching in Bangalore: St. Mark’s Road

These sketches are of two old buildings on St. Mark’s Road in Bangalore. They were built during the colonial era, and still have their original stone signs up, even though the establishments within them have changed. In their brown stone, they look graceful and enduring amidst the traffic and bustle.

  1. Very nice watercolors!

  2. Wow, these sketches are great. Do you apply the inks before or after the watercolors?

    • Thank you. We do light pencil sketches first, and then get in all the details with ink. The watercolors usually come last.

    • We usually do a quick pencil sketch first and then go back and work with ink, before the watercolors. Depending on the pens we use though, it’s sometimes easier for us to do the ink work last — otherwise it bleeds when we apply the paints!
