This print belongs tonal collection named ‘Antique Blue and Ochre’. This is the first colour scheme palette I developed. The colours are inspired from a small antique drawing of a palace in India from a drawing I found at the Museum of Fine Arts in San Francisco. This instinctive process has shaped a modern print with an strong echo from the past.
