These pages are created on stipple paper and the drawing pencils are augmented with liquid graphite or liquid pencil.
I’ve never played with liquid pencil before. Mixed with a little water, the result is a silvery paint-like substance. Fun!

Gorgeous work, Elena! Really captivating! Hard to believe you were just experimenting with the media! Looks like an elaborate Father/Mother Earth type image 🙂
Oh my, you humble me:) Thank YOU.
Thanks for the like Elena! Love this piece. And your willingness to experiment…with great results actually. Inspiring!
Thanks Deborah! Got to figure out what works, and what to do with it;)
This is really neat! I’ve never heard of liquid pencil before or stipple paper, but it looks fun!
Check ’em out! Fun surface and medium.
LOTS of fun! 😀
another fun thing to do is shave or grind up some charcoal and use a bamboo brush dipped in water to apply it. i’ve not seen the liquid pencil, but i have shaved soft graphite with my exacto for the same purpose. really enjoying your work! 🙂
Wow, THANK YOU Carol! I’ve never tried the ground charcoal. I will now….
Liquid pencil… hmmm. Never heard of it, but it looks like you have mastered it in this drawing of yours. Nice results.
Thanks Melissa. The liquid pencil is still new to me-experimenting.
Never heard of liquid pencil….I shall have to check that out and give it ago. I like the effect it gives, looks great.
Thanks Kellie, do give it a try.
Wonderful effect, both the stippled paper and the liquid graphite…neither of which I have tried as yet..maybe soon though. I am intrigued.
Edly, a perfect medium for you to try since you already work beautifully in graphite.
these are gorgeous elena! never heard of liquid pencil, it’s beautiful.
Thank you Christina. Give the liquid pencil a whirl.
Ooo I like the idea of liquid graphite..
Oh, do try.
Not much of an artist Elena.. photography is my thing.. ( though I used to make aromatherapy soap!! ) no time to add anything else in !!

Thank you so much Stefania:)

It truly is:)

Thank you Pat!
WOW! Seems so beautiful… But what is stipple paper… I looked for this word, yes I understand dictionary says, to make pictures with dots… but stipple paper… I am searching… You did so interesting drawing, and I can’t believe with this technique such a beautiful one… You are amazing. Thank you dear Elena, have a nice day, love, nia
Hi Nia, thanks for asking. Stipple paper is a textured paper with little raised dots, so it offers interesting results. Thanks Nia!
