View Full Version : WDE - 122013 - Tulips

About 8x10" Canson 65lb sketching paper. Done in charcoal and supplemented with a bit of Caran d'arche Museum Aquarelle pencils and a bit of water. Don't notice a huge difference between these 12 excessively expensive pencils and the Caran d'arche Supracolor Soft watercolor pencils of which I have 120. I expected them to be good, and they are. Glad I didn't buy 20 of them. I liked the freedom of movement that a 1/2" x 3" stick of charcoal gave, smooth and flowing. Didn't expect the charcoal to melt so easily in water. Quick sketch about an hour or so. Who keeps track...Thanks, Jean for the images. Been a long time and this was fun. Should be making cookies and sorting gifts...there's always tomorrow, for a couple of days.
