It was my first long series of sketching during travel to Taj Mahal and Varanasi.
Happy to share my entire sketch book here.
It was a fun filled travel with my CWC (Chennai Weekend Clicker) friends. It was a photography trip and I attempted possible on location sketches. Tones of wonderful learning. I was able to connect with people more easily with art works than photographs. They appreciated very much and made plenty of friends. Particularly lot of kids. Sad that the ASI site securities treated me like a terrorist. They have snatched away few papers I had in my pockets for sketching and told me that I must not sketch inside Taj. The way they handle this hurts very much (experienced the same at Mahabalipuram also some time back)!

5 days -> 53 sketches + around 5000 photos! Fingers were tired but the merciless mind was always seeking more to sketch and click. 

Used hero 578 calligraphy pen; Lamy pen; NERO soft pencil, Cretacolor Sepia oil and Pigma Graphic 3 pen. A5 sketch book.
