Wow! Your usual excellent detail with the pen, and the additional color wash, make this a winning piece. Well done, Balaji! I'm always impressed with your results, especially how quickly you can get them.
I have done very few line and washes in the past. I usually stick to either pen & ink, or watercolour and within these I sometimes work leisurely and in detail, or opt to do quick sketches. But I have now decided to do line and washes more frequently and see how far I can go with that.
