studies in charcoal

So the studies in charcoal started shortly after the field studies, where I wanted calm down a bit and really depict the softer side of nature.

Charcoal can be a very mysterious medium, and such is the case with nature. Just when we’ve seen it all , sometimes it is the most subdued hues that can be the most magical.

A smoky dawn or a lazy summer, dusk, dew and early twilight can all be so enticing to the senses in it’s simplicity.
