Procession

Indian ink is a versatile medium and I like experimenting with it on different supports. This drawing of the 'procession' was executed on glossy paper using traditional nib, and it depicts a king carrying a scepter and sitting on an elephant, preceded by a flag bearer and followed the bearer of the ceremonial umbrella. The forms are inspired by the South Indian temple sculptures and style of execution is somewhat similar to Madhubani style. I like this composition for its simplicity and elegance.
