Through My Sketchbook

Recently bought a Brustro sketchbook from Amazon, and started painting almost everyday. But it’s going to take a while to finish the whole sketchbook. Sketchbook is good for charcoal, pen, graphite. And okay for watercolor or ink, as 110GSM gets crumpled. Here are some of those paintings. More would be available on my Paintings page over … More Through My Sketchbook

Starry Sky in Oil Pastel

Tried to make an effect similar to sprinkling watercolor, using oil pastels. Made the background by applying with different colors and smudging them. Then painted the foreground hills and trees with black. Then made stars by shaving white pastel with a paper knife and pressed them on the paper.

Oil Pastel Portrait

Used oil pastel after many years. Result was satisfactory. Missing some details though for not having a crayon pencil. And as usual it is hard to recognize my portrait paintings, FYI this is meant to be Daisy Ridley as Rey in Star Wars series.

Origami Swan

Made it on this day of Saraswati Puja, out of almost 4 whole chart papers. Took about 6 hours to fold the papers and put all together. Fingers were paining after all that paper folding.

White Charcoal

Here are some of my recent works with white charcoal on black paper. After few days playing with black charcoal thought of trying some white ones too. Used General’s white charcoal pencil on black chart papers. Feels kinda like chalk on black board.
