In the northern edge of Ladakh is a small place called called Diskit. This monastery is nestled high above in the mountains. It was built in the 14th century. It is a seat of learning for the local children. They are given modern education. It is connected to the Mongolian mythology in that an evil anti buddhist demon was killed in its grounds. His head and hands are still preserved here.
I had already painted this long back in watercolors. This time wanted to experiment with photo colors. Tried this medium for the first time. Found it a little tricky to handle but it was fun. Just keep pouring and let the colors do their work!
