Far Distant Industry

Charcoal on Paper Going by the same theme as the previous drawing, I found this online where I wanted to capture the blacks and the light shades. This time instead of using the white paper for the lighter background, I used a white charcoal. However, I could not capture the radiant light coming from the […]

Industrial Smog

Charcoal on Paper My nephew ”commissioned” me to do this drawing. It was from the cover of a popular book, where the name escapes me. He said the whole picture gave him a sense of industrialization and the modern world which he liked. Rest, you need to ask him 🙂

Trees in a Cold Night

Charcoal on Paper Subjects don”t always have to be complex such as this case. The stark trees with a white background gives a cold impression to this drawing which anyone can create.

Bridge in New York City

Charcoal on Paper Many recognized immediately the location, especially folks who visited New York City. It was an interesting subject where I wasn”t just focused on nature but also the backdrop of the gleaming tall buildings of NY city.

Mysterious Climate

Charcoal on Paper This drawing had a very white shade in the middle which depicted possibly the bright sun in the far distant. The picture had atmosphere and I wanted to capture it in the drawing. I later did the same drawings using white charcoal to highlight the fence which I will also post.

A Road to Nowhere

Charcoal on Paper This was another simple subject and something you can practice on to get more good at the perspective.

A Muddy Snowy Path

Charcoal on Paper Again experimenting with the treescape theme, I found a photo which I turned into a drawing. Google has excellent pictures in their image section which can give you inspirations for drawings. With this one, I rubbed the charcoal into the pathway to give shades of gray while leaving the very contrasting areas […]

Top of Trees on Canvas

Charcoal on Paper I was simply practicing with drawing tress and found this interesting combination of the trees along with the canvas rings.
