With Gajanan, Sanjeev, Ravi, Kaka and Shailesh at Shantiniketan (canteen under the Banyan tree), Pune university
Last week I had been to Poona/Pune for 4 days. I met up with the maestro Milind sir and some other really awesome artists over there. It was great interacting with Milind sir and going through hoards of his work in his studio. I also managed to see him in action in studio and outdoors and it was very inspiring.
I also met up with some other great artists like Sanjeev Joshi, Shailesh Meshram, Gajanan Kashalkar, Ravi Songirkar, Kaka and enjoyed their hospitality at Pune university where I joined them for an outdoor painting session.
I also went for a birdwatching session with two wild life lovers Satyesh and Siddharth, and it was great fun. We did manage to spot some 25 different kind of birds that day.
It was really a great trip and wish to be back there soon. Here are some pictures of the trip and some en plein air paintings I manged to do there.
