The excitement of charcoal!

I have always been a big fan of charcoal and messy though it is, its feel and sound as you drag it across the paper is rewarding. So after attending a drawing workshop with charcoal, I have been doing some works using it with collage.

Still obsessed with the Gymea Lily, these drawings explore charcoal as a medium along with the plant and its flower.
