Sneaker in Water Soluble Pencil

Yesterday, I tried out Prismacolor Water Soluble Graphite Pencils (HB, 4B, 8B) in a 5" x 8" Moleskine Watercolor Notebook. Although I have had both the pencils and the Moleskine for a while, I had never used either. One difficulty I had with the water soluble pencils was preserving white areas; it is very easy to go too dark.

That's a great shoe. I love the detail and shading. It's so easy to get carried away with those pencils. They're addicting but fun.

Thanks for visiting my blog and taking the time to comment.

I like this drawing - very sensitive.

I just picked up one of these pencils but have not used it with water yet. I tried it out in a life drawing class and it seemed not to erase very well.

Happy New Year - Bill
