India in Line Drawings

First Online: January 22, 200
Last Update: April 04, 2014

Introduction

During my travels and studies, for several reasons (lack of co-operation, Government regulations, prohibited photography, bad light, poor dark-room facilities, and cost) it was not always possible to document the happenings or artifacts on film. Over the years, I have learnt to authentically reproduce/enhance the experience via line drawings done in India ink. This is especially true of historical sculptures where the originals themselves were in extremely poor condition.
