You Could Eat The Walls

We had time to pop into Muskan, our favorite Indian restaurant, a couple days ago, and dined on way too much sumptuous food.  As often happens, the artistry of the decor in the place hadn't sunk into my awareness on previous visits until I whipped out my little Moleskine and pen that day.   It's true that one connects with their environment so much more when they sketch!  Even if only to sketch in the ink drawing and memorize the colors to fill in later at home.   I left the little banner that was hanging between the arches blank, as I couldn't remember the colors on that.  Oh, no... that means Jim and I will have to go back!  The figure on it looked like a stylized Ganesha, the elephant-headed god.  

This drawing was done with Staedler black pigment liner (01 and 03)  and "painted" with Derwent Inktense color pencils on water media Moleskine book paper, highlights done with white gel pen.
