Delhi

I went to Delhi, India last week to work with a business partner we have over there. The food was fantastic, and there was a lot of interesting architecture to sketch. Fortunately, I have some friends in the area who were able to show me around a little, and were willing to humor my sketching habit.

India Gate

India Gate is a monument in central New Delhi that was built to commemorate the sacrifices of British and Indian soldiers in World War I. This week it was a gathering place (along with a few other places in the city) for people protesting against corruption along with Anna Hazare. This was an exciting moment to be in India.

I also got a chance to visit various temples and gardens, both old and new, all of which were beautiful, and unlike anything I'd had the opportunity to sketch before. Some were in perfect condition, while others were in a delightful state of disrepair that made them very interesting subjects to draw. I've posted a few more on my flickr page, as well as some images of Frankfurt from the trip home.

There was so much to see and draw just in Delhi. I'm hoping that I'll get a chance to come back in the near future.

München

I had a 12 Uhr layover in München, Deutschland last week, which gave me just enough time to take the S-bahn into the city and do a little sketching. I actually planned the flights that way on purpose, so I could have a chance to stretch my legs a bit and explore the city before the next flight, which was also a long one (more on that later).

I had wanted to sketch the Glockenspiel at the Rathaus, but found it a little too intimidating, so I sketched a side street instead.
