Shrine at Sri Ramakrishna Mutt, Mylapore, Chennai

The Sri Ramakrishna Mutt is a monastic order started in the 19th century by Saint Ramakrishna Paramahamsa. The Chennai (or Madras) branch was started in 1887 and it moved to the present premises in 1907. What I I have sketched is a small shrine honouring the saint. I sketched this very quickly with a ball point pen on location and added the colour washes later at home. The sketch is approximately 5.5" x 7".
