"To live a creative life we must lose our fear of being wrong." Joseph Chilton Pearce
mountain village in North Sikkim. It is about 118 kms away
from Lachung. Most tourists spend a night at Lachung
before proceeding to Zero point in the morning. Zero point
offers stunning views of snow clad mountains
and soaring coniferous trees.
The charcoal drawing as below is a scene that we came across
while we were travelling towards Zero point during
early morning hours.
At Zero Point
Charcoal drawing on Cartridge paper
Size 6"X 8"
I decided to photograph the drawing in stages so that the viewers
can see the simple techniques that I have followed
in order to complete this artwork.
Step 1. Created a faint outline and then used willow charcoal
for the background mountains.
Step 2. Additional strokes using willow charcoal to block in
the darker values in the foreground.
Step 3. Lifted out clouds in the distance using kneaded eraser
and used charcoal pencil in the foreground to
to create the coniferous trees and foliage.
