Every three months or so my wife and I travel with a group of friends to places of cultural and heritage interest in Tamilnadu. Last weekend we travelled to Madurai. This city is more than 2000 years old and has figured prominently in ancient Tamil literature. My sketch shows the Southern gopuram (tower) of the Meenakshi Temple. The tower was built in the 17th century but the temple itself has been in existence from around the 6th century.
I spent around 15 minutes on location directly sketching the outline of the main elements, including all the tiers of the tower, the columns, and the steps in ink, and then developed the tones later at home with cross hatching.
