Ganpati Bappa Morya!!

This is the chant with which the entire city of Mumbai bade farewell to their favourite  deity amid festivities. The idols, some more than 50 feet tall, are immersed today.

We had a huge Ganpati Pandal right next to our studio in a quiet garden, away from the traffic. I took this opportunity to take the kids there and sketch the Ganesh idol through observation. I think it was a great exercise and the kids were completely absorbed. The outcome was a highly detailed rendering of the huge idol. Here are some of the sketches done directly with a pen.
