Shantaram


Shantaram, Charcoal on Paper, (15" X 11")
This is a portrait of a roadside fruit vendor near my place in Hyderabad. I tried a bit of abstraction here with the forehead merging in the background on the left side. I find charcoal a very flexible medium and quite amenable to such experimentation.
Please leave a comment to let me know what you think about this piece.
Thanks for visiting my blog.

I really think charcoal is your medium. You create such powerful work with it.
