the food grain carrier. there's a big storage area of Food Corporation of India just across the street of where i stay and every morning these trucks will line up to go in and come back loaded with the food grain sacks. they will wait for sometime before making there journey's to their destinations. this one caught my attention because of the beautiful sun and shadow it was casting with its loads. to add on this, while sketching this [about 65 %], there was a monkey attack :)!! these two monkey came and entered my house and took out some potatoes, a pack of flour and peanuts and was not moving at all for an hour. they also drank and threw away my water sources of painting! finally when they left, the truck has already gone. so i had to finish the rest of this sketch from my memory. i am glad that i had put enough input in this sketch already before the drama began.
