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!

  5. LOTS of fun! 😀

  6. 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! 🙂

  7. Liquid pencil… hmmm. Never heard of it, but it looks like you have mastered it in this drawing of yours. Nice results.
