Liquid Pencil, gouache Smoke: the possibilities for imagery…
Less is often more. That’s how I feel about some of the sketching I’ve been working with lately. This happened in two minutes. A pinky dip into the Liquid Pencil pot. I suppose I was channeling a woman of long ago.
Sketchbook Project 2013 Graphite, Liquid Pencil & White Gouache on Stipple Paper There’s just something about the dappled light and density of the forest. The contrasts in the scale of life. I want to stay. It feels like home.
Sketchbook Project Pages 9-10 I’m working with pencil on stipple paper again, with the tiniest bit of liquid pencil and white acrylic. Just playing a little with scale and the concepts of beginning, staying and straying.
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!
