This is a scene from the sitting room at my uncle, Sridhar Mama's house.. The interiors are decorated well with pretty, ethnic Indian pieces, yet when you look to marvel at them by day, the light from outside just screams for attention of its own..
I just obliged and painted it all!!!

Big brother was mighty excited that his baby brother was coming all the way to drop him.. He insisted that Sooryansh watches him when he alights the bus. He boarded the bus and said 'Bye' to Sooryansh - he doesn't really care to look back and say bye to me!
On his way back Sooryansh dozed off and remained asleep till I could get home, draw him looking down, and finish a couple of chores.. I should do this more often I guess..

The streets lit with incandescent streetlamps, it seemed like the cool green trees next to my mom's house wore a more warm black-green that day.
Sridhar Mama keeps pink lotuses on the dashboard of his car. They too lost their cool colors giving way to a more sepia appearance.
Interestingly, the steering wheel still held a cool feel to it - thanks to internal light! No, there were no lights lit inside the car - just the light from inside reflected by the silver interior colors..
The painting is actually a small part of a journal page. I was quite unprepared for how I should handle the subject. I didn't want to put in time to plan it either - so short of time I was... But, here's the journal page (minus the notes that I put in later - much later!!)

Mridula loves to drop in and share her stories with me.. She loves to dress up well and loves it when we notice.. She loves to pose.. Tanush is more carefree and makes sure that he doesn't really pay attention to details.. He'll make sure it is as difficult as he can make it for you to draw him.. But they compete in everything.. eating, playing and even going down the stairs.. She loves to bully him! He still doesn't care! :)
She has been missing Tanush since he went to Trissur last weekend.. But she's ok with coming over and playing with Sooryansh.. Sooryansh can't say much but he loves to see her too.. Sweet kid..
