still sleeping

New materials. Saw a really cool-looking mechanical pencil at the art museum's gift shop, marked 50% off - so I got it. Wavered among various colors, and chose black. Thick lead goes on soft and dark. Decide to draw the sleeping child. Does it erase? Nope. O.k., fine. Let's add some gouache to put color around the page. The wet brush gets slightly too close to the pencil line, which suddenly gets silky, inky black. Mmmm. I will be playing with this a lot, I predict. Replacement leads are available, too....
