More work with the new watersoluble pencil. I love that when I begin to use this dry, the lines are very light and sketchy - I can see the grain of the paper interrupt the color, and at the same time, the lead is soft and easy to move across the page. Then as soon as I add water - wow - the darks are powerful and the washes easy to pull from them. Lots of contrast, lots of strength. Can't wait to see what direction this takes me.

Great drawing! Your description of this pencil makes me want to play with it. Love the way the finished work looks, would love to see how it looks before you added the water...

Thanks. If you look at the entry for December 8, you'll see how the pencil looks without water. I didn't know it was watersoluble until I brushed the gouache nearby.

that's really lovely!
