The Daily Commute watercolor ink India Art Journal 2017 by Meera Rao
I distinctly remember the fear and excitement when I was a little girl looking out the open train car door as the world zipped by. I only traveled a couple of times on train when I was young which made the trips quite memorable. This commuter train was moving slowly past the station. The little kid in white uniform shirt with school backpack and the lady sitting right next caught my attention along with the many passengers crammed in! The overcrowded dusty train cars on an overcast day made an impression on me.
This is the last sketch in my little homemade accordion watercolor journal from my short trip to India in Nov 2017. Below is the photo of the completed open journal. There is a sketch behind the bell that I could not include in this shot. I started the sketches during my trip and used reference photos once I returned to complete them with watercolors.
