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.

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.

Watercolor Toothbrush Technique

After seeing a video on Facebook, couldn’t resist of trying this toothbrush splattering technique. Seemed easy but nice looking for stars, trees etc. The starry sky is somewhat copy of the image I saw on Facebook. The cherry tree is just another try with technique, which actually didn’t go as expected.

Charcoal painting

This is the first time I tried charcoal drawing. Really loved the media after the first painting of dog. Used Bold, Medium and Hard Apsara Charcoal Pencil on Art notebook for Dog and Elephants painting.
