Tarmac and Vinca

The helicopters on tarmac and vincas in the foreground along with the control tower are captivating. Water colour on catrige paper 9" x 12". (2008)

All three

Three of the figurines where fired in a tandoor. The difference in colour is due to the non-uniform heating. The old man with a stick in his 'Jalabiya', is an oft seen scence at Kadugli.
