No drawings outside, it's too wet. My value exercises are based on photographs. This one is based on a picture of a cow in India, taken two years ago in a village called Ochra.

I remember your Orchha drawings done onsite. They are great. I like the cow too. Thanks for sharing.

Nice sketch. My grandparents owned cows and treated them with great affection - almost like members of the family. But the next generation migrated to towns, cities and far flung parts of the world.
I tried to locate Ochra and couldn't. Which part of India is it in?

Thanks balaji, i wrote the name incorrect, it's Orchha, Near Jhansi. Beautiful town with fantastic ruines. We also visited a few small villages there, to see the rural life. I have warm memories from the town. Check the blog posts of early september 2010.
