Sketching Kathmandu

Spending just a day in Kathmandu, Nepal will leave you with a memory full of unforgettable images of excellent craftmanship of artisans and artists of both hindu and buddhist temples/ stupas. My sketches  (ink on paper, handmade lokta paper)inspired by views of some of them are here they are not the exact pictorial impressions but an artist’s viewpoint:
