Demo work done during a workshop
Viewing the apple from the top, created this charcoal painting of an apple as a demo work during a Charcoal Painting workshop. Apart from using Fabriano and Canson paper I also use cartridge sheet as in the book whose image I am posting below. It is a simple Navneet drawing book and I like the cartridge sheets in it.
This book costs just Rs 18 and I use it frequently to do my rough sketches. The apple sketching has been done on a cartridge sheet from this book. Not recommended for serious work as it is not acid free and will turn yellow over a period of years.

Charcoal sketching on cartridge paper
Used CONTE charcoal pencil and kneaded eraser for the creation. The technique involved blending
and scribbling with the pencil to create the values.
