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

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 😊
On a recent visit to a small village in East Sikkim called Budan, where we had gone for a homestay, I asked the village elders to spread the word that I would be happy to have an impromptu art class for all children who were interested.
To my utter delight, about fifteen of them turned up! And there, in the middle of silence and mountains and the rolling mist we sketched and painted Geraniums!
That evening is a memory that will be etched in my mind for posterity. It made me realise that we should assume nothing, take nothing for granted and if there is a sincere thought, it will find resonance with many! 🎨🎵💕

A walk into a world
Of my own making
Where every stroke
Follows my command
Where flowers bloom

Nature inspires and
Till we have no option
But to sit up and take note
Of its beauty and playfulness
And let some of it rub off
On is 😊

I meet many people who express their fear of color or failure to make anything substantial when it comes to painting, especially watercolours… My response is always the same, just plunge into it with joy.. See how the colours blend and get excited by that magical process. You are not creating for anyone but yourself and never ever forget that…. 😊
