Started on Durer’s muzzle of a bull study in watercolor 2 days back however was not too happy with the result. So yesterday night spent couple of hours making this Charcoal study, though messy medium, i really like the freedom of this medium. The dark blacks and whites one can achieve is soothing to my soul.

Eurasian Thick knee’s are great subjects to study, they don’t move at all, they are confident on their camouflage. Ranganathittu bird sanctuary is a great place to study them, took a boat safari and made this quick sketch of them. During studies, i prefer using charcoal sticks for studies, it’s easy to carry them. Put them a small box, papers rolls, a hat, a binocular and bottle of water. I am ready to go!
