So thanks to another artist’s post on Instagram (Paul Wang), I learned of an art product and had to try it. It’s water soluble graphite (here in sepia). It’s a cake of graphite that looks like a chunk of solid watercolor pigment and it’s been lots of fun to play with. Here I was at Peet’s Coffee in Alameda, experimenting. One great thing about laptops and such devices is that people using them hold still for long periods. Great for sketching. They aren’t members of the models guild, though, so I can’t get mad at them when they wiggle around too much. Used my 10×7 watercolor sketch pad.
