Hampi – On an artist’s canvas

Hampi is not just a photographer’s paradise, but it has served as a muse for several artists. The ruins and the landscapes offer a great opportunity for artists to create live sketches at this World Heritage Site. One such illustrator is Jayesh Sivan. Few years ago, during one of his visits to Hampi, he indulged in some pencil sketches and paintings. Take a look at some of his wonderful work (with his permission) here:
