Postcard Series - Finale!

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers


Last of my postcard series with Derwent Inktense Blocks and I have completed all 14. Though I have shown only 12 as the view-denied two haven't reached my satisfaction. And let me tell you this is not a sponsored post of Derwent. I bought these Inktense blocks sometime back and finally put them to use. That's it. It was definitely fun putting it all together and once I decided that I would want to paint landscapes (mini,of course) the rest was easy.

The landscapes below are two of my favourite places - the first is my hometown, Palakkad, and the second is near to my second home, Fort Kochi, one of the most beautiful and artsy places in India. I have not been able to capture the unabridged beauty of the places though! Like always the picture is accompanied by my micro-poems.

Want to see my earlier postcard art? It's here - Part1, Part2 and Part3.

Paddyfields-Palakkad-HuesnShades
Swirling and giggling
Fields, once thronging
Less and less to be seen
Amid the concrete jungle
Building up like weeds
Depending on neighbours
For pesticide food
Neglecting our own granaries. 


ChineseFishingNets-FortKochi-HuesnShades
Setting Sun
Reminds us
Of settling 'spaces'
Everyday, every time
To a new beginning.

Wow! Those are some gorgeous paintings! I don't have Derwent Inktense blocks but I may look into getting some after seeing this.

Your postcards are absolutely beautiful! They when accompanied by your poetry are very emotional and personal. Happy PPF.

The postcards turned out very well, especially the green fields. Just sort of looks like home.
