Demo works created during an art workshop - Charcoal medium

From time to time I conduct Art workshops  wherein I get to interact with people like me who
are passionate about art. During this workshop I share and demonstrate my techniques which
I follow to create my kind of art.

The image below is a collage of three charcoal sketching's that I demonstrated during a recent two days charcoal workshop. 

1. A scene from Kalpa ( Himachal Pradesh )
2. Sea waves hitting the shore. ( Langkawi island )
3. A scene inspired from Himachal Pradesh.

on their own to know what paper or pencil suits their work. 

Art workshops are fun and I always look forward to it. It inspires and motivates me. I in turn
motivate the participants to work towards their art, to create original works and pursue their
