In ruins WIP

I had taken this photo on a short trek to Nijagal betta near Bangalore. Typically almost all hills which happen to be near a village in Karnataka do have a temple built on them. As they are built in Dravidian architecture they are very similar in appearance. And as they are quiet old (typicaly 400-500 years but some temples are more than 1000 years old) and there is no ownership to look after them the condition of all of them are also very similar.

I thought of posting the WIP for this as somehow I ended up doing a negative space painting for this, going dark to light.

Ramesh, Thank you. Even I like WIPs because it shows how a white paper transforms into something else. Please keep posting your WIPs too.

Anand, I am glad you liked it.

I have never tried my hand on water colors...But my very fellow artist friends inspire to work with it. Architecture is really really difficult to draw and paint! But you did a great job..Thanks for posting WIP as it would be a great help for me in near future.

Megha, Thank you so much. Yes, Architecture is a bit of technical stuff and takes more time to draw. For a lazy person like me once in a while I try it. I'll try to get some more WIPs for my next paintings and post them.

Ruchi, thanks a lot. Right now being a bachelor I am able to squeeze out time. :)
