Rajagiri, Senji

From this point onwards I shall be posting current work. This one was done a few weeks ago when I visited Senji along with my wife, daughter and many friends from the Chennai Weeknd Artists.
Rajagiri Fort at Senji (also referred to as Gingee) is approached through a roofed stone entranceway, and then through an arched pavilion. Once past the pavilion there is a fairly large area with many interesting buildings and of course, the 800 feet (240 metre) tall Rajagiri hill on which the fort itself is located. My sketch shows the view that you see as you come through the first entranceway. I sketched this in ink and then added some watercolour, both on location.
