I woke up in the morning and was wondering about my sketch for the day when a beautiful photograph materialised on Facebook.
Without thinking twice, I made a quick watercolour and posted it in my album on FB titled, ‘A sketch a Day’ after giving due credit to the photographer for providing the inspiration.
In no time I received a message from an online magazine asking me if they could use my sketch, as I had no objection, the excerpt below is what they did with it!!

Aayee Baarish !
The arrival of monsoons brings forth endless opportunities for photographers to capture the beauty of the season. Those dreamy, pastel shaded landscapes to interesting street scenes, just sit in a dingy corner of a roadside tea shop and watch the magic of rainy season. The only challenge remains the safety of camera equipment, especially lenses.

It takes more than rain
To stop the forward march!

The two artists inspiring each other.. 🙂
Sometimes a doodle or a fun process in the sketch book demands to be elaborated and explored…. This is what my thumbnail sketch is evolving into 😊
My sketchbook imparts the most positive life lessons for me….it tells me…
Ideas give excitement and cost nothing, therefore, stay excited 😊
Every sketch needs to see the light of day ☺️, without any judgement…🌿
The impatience outside is silenced within the calm of the pages 🐞
Every stroke matters…to complete a picture as unique as me🙃
If nothing is working… Turn over a new leaf 😀
Most importantly, if the book is over, don’t hesitate to start a new one!
And finally, never forget why you started this journey in the first place…
It was a grey day. Dark and overcast. I went to check on the Koi fish to see how they were doing and reassure myself that their pond had not overflown with the incessant night rain.
There was nothing in sight barring some bedraggled water Lillies and fat, round Lilly pads, collecting water… And then, as if on cue, a vibrant cloud of Koi appeared from under the leaves… Gorgeous, pure, graceful and languid…. Totally unaware of the surrounding drab and muddy weather, they were just sure of their own purpose… That of adding a spark to the environment in which they lived and in the only way they knew how 😊!
One stroke at a time
I painstakingly recreate
When birds will land
And trust us enough
On a finger or Hand…
That will be the day
Of our success
As humans… 🌼🐥
