This is a familiar sight in India, and if you are ever travelling around the capital, you are bound to use one of these. Tuk-tuk or autos, or auto-rickshaws as they may be called. Whizzing around one of these in the hectic chaotic traffic is an experience not to be missed, but is certainly not for the faint-hearted!
What I find particularly fascinating is how each of these are decorated and painted in bright-often garish- motifs and colours, which really stand out against the black and yellow. They are almost like a canvas for the drivers' creativity, and the naive, often folk-style, designs convey so much about their individual personalities too.
I have drawn this from a photograph I took whilst travelling around Delhi. It is made with fineliners and winstor and newton watercolours on a 350 gsm acid-free heavyweight watercolour paper.
In bright pop colours, this really stands out, and will make a delightful gift or for your home, to relive fond memories of travels, or as a reminder of the affinity and affection for the subcontinent.
If you'd like a larger sized drawing on a similar theme, do not hesitate to contact me and I would be happy to create something just for you.
