This weekend however I had playtime so I had fun testing some of my purchases.
These are water soluble graphite blocks by Art Graf
|Wet into Wet, drawn lines on dry paper, and used on the side for bigger shapes|
They can be washed away but will leave a but if a murky residual so they would not suit if a botanical, neat as a pin result was required.
|With French Ultra Marine and Burnt Sienna watercolour added|
They suited me just fine to create this abstracted work of Pink Magnolia at the end of winter patiently waiting for spring so their bare branches would give way to new lovely green leaves.
