A virtual trip to New Delhi 6th Jan 2021 ~ Jo Dungey ~ Leave a comment The sketch above, in sepia ink, was done sitting in the Lodi Gardens in New Delhi in 2014. Today, I visited New Delhi again, more or less. This was as part of a virtual world cruise run by Urban Sketchers Oxford, with sketches posted on their Facebook page. As meeting in groups to sketch on location is neither legal or safe at the moment, the core activity of Urban Sketching groups cannot happen. Groups have found a variety of alternatives. Members of the Oxford group have made virtual visits to other places such as Singapore and Sydney. Having been to Delhi, real world version, I thought I would have a go. Here are two versions of one of the most famous landmarks, the India Gate. The first is done in chinagraph pencil, the second is an attempt at a freer watercolour style, trying to find an alternative to too much architectural line drawing.
