Placing a drop of water on a leaf, created a charcoal painting of the same capturing its shadow and the highlight created by sunlight. Painting from a live subject always helps to observe and analyse the details which I find is missing in photographs.
The pencils used for creating this charcoal painting are
- Camel soft charcoal pencil
- Conte A Paris charcoal pencil
- PRIMO charcoal pencil ( General Company )
Also used my usual blending tools at certain places.
Drop of water
Charcoal painting on Canson Ca grain paper.
The Canson Ca grain paper is textured paper and is quite good for charcoal work.
