Tree Bark

Graphite on Handmade paper.
Photographing pencil sketches is such a tricky thing. After an year or more of trying I am yet to click a perfect picture of my sketches. Should try scanning soon...

The reference image for this drawing is from the blog 'The Artistic Biker', a great place for reference images for still life works.

Ballpoint Pen

Ballpoint pen on A4 printer paper.
This sketch was supposed to be a quick value drawing for a future painting... but I got carried away and spent a whole week on this Dahlia closeup. The drawing is done with a ballpoint pen on A4 copier paper.
Note to self: Next time I spend so much time on a sketch I should at least ensure I am doing it on a better archival paper.

Charcoal on Handmade paper.
Inspired by Priya Sebastian, who blogs at  the fabulous 'tHe pLum tRee'. Charcoal as a medium was very scary and still is to a large extent. But slowly trying to over come those fears.
