the new year 2013 started with a nice skethwalk in the afternoon starting from Brigade road-M.G. Road juncture ending at Government Museum at Kasturba Gandhi Marg, Bangalore. Madhu Kumar from Singapore visited the city and wanted to sketch together for a day and it was pleasure to meet such nice person and prolific Urban Sketcher and watercolor artist who currently stays and works in Singapore and a native of Mysore. i had to wait for him for about 40 minutes as i reached a little earlier and thought of sketching the metro station at the mg road. i added the colors later on at home.
