Tanjore Big Temple
I wanted to try something different this time. Hence Architecture. I was browsing the net in search of good temple pics to draw. All that I had in mind was to do something simple to get a feel of it and then maybe at a later point of time do a detailed sketch. To test waters, I thought this pic was the right choice. The idea of superimposing Brihadeeswarar temple on an engraved stone from the same temple was superb. Only while doing this did I realize the importance of paper texture, to give the feel of stone. I have did what is possible within my limitations.
Here is a neat pic on the evolution of tamil script. Check this out to find which century did the letters found on the sketch above belong to..:)
