State Museum Cafetaria

Kindly click on the image for a bigger view

This is a sketch of the cafeteria area behind the State Museum in Bangalore at Kasturba Gandhi Marg [Road]. I did the Ink sketch while waiting for a couple friend who were leaving the city for good. I added the colors later on at home. This place is very calm, good to seat down for a tea or coffee and very near to Cubbon Park, The Science Museum, The Aquarium and UB City Mall.

To start off on location, I marked some guidelines with a graphite pencil for the main structure, the position of the umbrella, the foreground elements, the tiled layout to get the perspective lines and spacing correct still keeping it loose. Then I sketched over with a Pigma Micron 005 [.20 mm with waterproof ink] pigment liner pen and erased the graphite underlines. I further enhanced some areas with a waterproof Gel ink pen [.50 mm thickness] to give importance. Later on at home, I added the watercolor washes based from my memory.
