Tree from Lonavala - sketching on toned paper

"Drawing is not the same as form; it is a way of seeing form." Edgar Degas

During my last visit to Lonavala, I came across some tree trunks with beautiful forms and shapes and interesting textures of the bark. I always marvel at "Nature's creations". There is so much art all around us. So perfect and so beautiful.

I decided to do the tree trunk on a textured steel grey hand made paper that I had recently
 picked up from Sun Enterprises at Bora Bazaar, Fort. This shop has a variety of hand
 made papers and some of them can be used for charcoals and pastels. One has to try
them out.
