Roghi village near Kalpa - soft pastel painting

Roghi village is a small village about 8 kms away from Kalpa. The road leading to this village is a cliff hugging one way road with spectacular sights on the way. Once we reach the village we have to park our vehicle outside itself and enter the village on foot. The houses are all built on slopes ( I shall paint one of the traditional houses soon ) and the village is green with trees, barley crops, apple orchards etc.

Given below is a soft pastel painting of a view as seen from Roghi village. Normally I have been using the Tobacco and black paper of Canson Mi tentes, but this time I decided to use a light coloured paper as shown below.
