Automotive charcoal drawings
Since 1991 Henk Holsheimer draws cars with charcoal, in the beginning mostly sports cars and racing scenes. By continuously developing this classic drawing technique in different variations Henk has created his own unique and recognizable style.
Abstract charcoal drawings
During his art and design studies in 1998 at Pforzheim University Henk started to create abstract charcoal drawings. These artworks were exhibited for the first time at ARTMUC 2014.
One of a designer’s basic skills is the ability to quickly visualize an idea through a quick sketch. A sketch is often more lively and allows more room for interpretation and inspiration compared to final computer renderings.
