Urban Confusion

A few days in Shimla were the right inspiration to get back to sketching. After decades I got down to doing this pencil and charcoal work. I am posting this and my future sketches as blogs, hoping to introduce you to my style of art and communicate something through them.

So here goes.

Please dwell on the sketch. Interpret it for yourself and then read my explanation under the sketch. Would appreciate your comments and inputs.

Urban confusion

The urban setting has a seemingly clean table, picturesque with scholarly books. However, beyond the surface is confusion, questions and random partnerships. Toiletries and stationary live together; whisky and milk stand side by side with no qualms. The online world has broken into the clean table and changed the landscape forever.

The urban table is odd shaped, its creative, it has no legs, it hangs; something dark is holding it up and the money under it fuels its existence.

And yet, it’s sought after.

    The sketch is very good, glad you put charcoal to paper. Urban life seems very cold and lonely and far from nature or people.

    The sketch is very nice and I am happy you put charcoal to paper. Urban life seems cold and the urban world depicted seems very lonely and cluttered. The simple joys are missing completely and so is nature.
