Postcard Series - Landscapes and poems

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers


When we travel we often look for postcards not only as keepsakes but also to send it to our family and friends. When I saw the blank Winsor and Newton postcards I wanted to have them but hadn't thought of what I would want to paint on them. In fact it was in hibernation for quite a while! Finally one fine day in August I took them out and decided to make some miniature landscapes on them. But as I was engaged in some exhibition works at the time I just made two and now after Inktober I started to continue with this series. I have used only Derwent Inktense Blocks as this is purely experimental for me in terms of colours as well as the theme of landscapes (except two the rest are landscapes).

So here's more from my postcard series with my micro-poems...The first picture is from a photo I saw when browsing through landscape photos, don't know whose picture it is. The second one is from a photo of Ed Shots whom I follow in Instagram and yes, I have tagged him there. He has some Awesome shots some of which have the feel of being quite lyrical! The last picture is from a photo my daughter clicked while we were walking around in Fort Kochi. It's en route to Pepper House when you get down the ferry.

MossyShrine-HuesnShades
 It is a 'game' of love
Every heart is a tomb
In the name of love!


BlueNight-HuesnShades
 Into 
The blue night
The scintillating
Flowers whispered
Saccharine secrets!


AbandonedBoat-HuesnShades
Reminiscing the salad days
Now bathing in the Sun
Longing for the lost waters!



Linking it to Eva and Kristin's Paint Party Friday.

So beautiful, poetic, and inspiring Deepa, each piece with a character of its own. Love the last one especially for its dreamy feel, the one clicked by your daughter, that is my favorite.
