India Street Food Vendor, gift for traveler - 8x8 print from an original watercolor sketch

This is a print of my original sketch done with watercolor, pen and ink. The print is designed to float in a standard 8" x 8" frame with a thin white border. The actual image size is 7" x 7". It is printed on Archival Fine Art Paper. Each print is signed and carefully packed and shipped.

This sketch is part of a series of everyday scenes I captured on a recent trip through India. This street food vendor, known as a chaatvalla, stands by his colorful cart doling out 'alu tikkis': spicy fried potato dumplings, topped with garbanzo beans. This was a particularly fun piece to work on, as all the parts of this composition echoed the same circular form: the large round cooking vessel, the smaller dumplings that circle it, the dotted pattern on the chaatvala's shirt, the smaller round vessels on his left, the round wheels on the cart and finally the rich brown dabs of color that are the garbanzo beans in a pan topped by a whole red tomato!

All my sketches are done on-site, from direct observation. The print you will receive is a high-resolution scan of the original and will show all it's natural imperfections (the blot of an inked-in line, a faintly drawn pencil sketch under the watercolor), all integral to the process.

Please contact me if you have any questions or want to request a custom size.
Thank You!
