Painting with Pencil......WIP

Okay, I've been drawing since the age of two and just discovered blending pencils with dry paint brushes! Here is my latest work-in-progress using dry brushes of various size to softly blend and push graphite where I want it. I may not be the first and hopefully won't be the last to use brushes for pencil drawings but it's always exciting finding different avenues to achieve a desired result.



More to come...

Thanks Judi!

I'm working on Strathmore medium tooth Drawing Paper. The entire piece has been drawn with a 0.5mm HB mechanical pencil.

Wow Paul, this is gorgoeus! Can you go all the way with the tip on the brush and tell us what kind of brush, bristle or......? I will be glued to my chair with this one.

Re: Painting with Pencil......WIP

Thank you for the kind words, Molesworth and Mary!

Mary-
I am using small detail brushes with the pointed tip. I find that the stiffer the bristles the better for tiny places like around eyes and softening/shading hair strands. I also use a 1/4" wide flat/straight brush for larger areas like the skin.
I hope that helps, I'm terrible with "paint brush" terminology! LOL!

Re: Painting with Pencil......WIP

You're welcome!

Here's another progress report...


Still plugging away... There are many layers to go before it is a tight complete image, please forgive the odd looking areas. I keep jumping back and forth between parts. I started blocking the hair strands out and detailing them a bit.

Thanks AL! I really appreciate that!

I am taking advantage of the long 4th of July weekend and getting some much needed art done.

Here's another quick update:


Just wanted to get a progress scan in before I got to far into the detailing process. Still more to go.
