Ruins of Tughlaqabad - New Delhi

Pastel on La Carte paper 16" X 20" 

I was in India last month, perhaps my most memorable experience was visiting the  Tughlaqabad fort. The fort was built in 1300's by Ghiyas-ud-din Tughlaq, now in ruins. It is one of the lesser know tourist places in Delhi, but the view was breathtaking! I took lots of pictures and hope to make quite a few paintings from them. I particularly like archways and battlements, light passing through it adds interest to the composition, so picked this one to start with.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Hope you enjoyed. Please feel free to leave your comments.
