ADDING ONE MORE


Another family member to add to the mix.  I started sketching the images onto the collage with a white charcoal pencil/pastel pencil for the lightest values and a charcoal pencil for the darkest values.  I don't know why I didn't think of this idea sooner.  Because the collage paper is coated with acrylic medium, I can easily "erase" the pencil with a damp paper towel  or wet it with a brush and wipe it away.  When I am satisfied, I wet the pastel/charcoal to lift off the excess powder and paint right over it.  I must remember to add these two pencils to my supply list for my students.

Always discovering and sharing -- thank you! I have used watercolor pencils to sketch -- but sometimes the lines are erased before they should be ! Happy New year!

Thanks, guys. On to the next panel! Meera, these are not watercolor pencils but charcoal or pastel (white). They act a little differently.
