Sketch & Wash {art supplies}

The charcoal pencil.
It has been one of my go to supplies for a long time now.
I love the shadow effect I can get out of it to pop a subject up to the eye.
The depth it can create with its contrast.
The way it can finish a piece when used along the edges.


Recently I started playing with a water soluble graphite pencil.
{General's Sketch & Wash}
That charcoal pencil might want to be wary.
Lighter in value, but gives a nice smooth and delicate shadow.
It moves about the page easier.

Same, but different.
Both fun to use.

You know exactly how to make that charcoal pencil jealous. Lovely work with the water soluble pencil.

I'll have to look for that new pencil - I have always been nervous of using graphite - heck, I'm nervous of anything involving sketching and painting... you make it look so easy. I know it's practice that gets one there in the long run, but it still takes courage to keep going!

Looks delicious. Watched a couple of movies on Youtube after you mentioning it, and I might give it a try. I have never been able to crack nice shading. Your handwriting font is to die for...
