Sketchbook 3-4

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!

  1. Thanks for the like Elena! Love this piece. And your willingness to experiment…with great results actually. Inspiring!

  2. This is really neat! I’ve never heard of liquid pencil before or stipple paper, but it looks fun!

  3. 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! 🙂

  4. Never heard of liquid pencil….I shall have to check that out and give it ago. I like the effect it gives, looks great.

  5. Wonderful effect, both the stippled paper and the liquid graphite…neither of which I have tried as yet..maybe soon though. I am intrigued.

  6. these are gorgeous elena! never heard of liquid pencil, it’s beautiful.

  7. 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
