    Coloured Graphite - Newy - 25th March

    I haven't done any graphite drawings lately, being totally obsessed with AR. This was a practice one of my Dova sleeping ... on not too terrific paper. I scanned it and put it into Art Rage, coloured the grey and then put a sepia wash over it. Now I am quite please with the result.

    Thanks Jmac, I used to do the graphite on paper and then do a watercolour sepia wash over the top which was quite a nice effect. Doing it this way, I was able to tint the paper and the grey graphite at the same time. Interesting!

    Wooooow. . . this is a MASTERPIECE, copespeak!!!!!!! (no kidding) GREAT technique and hand control. I LOVE the rhythm of the lines. Really great. On one hand it reminds me of an engraving or silverpoint or something like that, yet it's done with a pencil which sort of goes naturally contrary to those linear, tight parallel methods owing to the tonal nature and softness of graphite -- at least in the real world. Anyway, I love how you pushed the detail of the fur yet maintained the dominance of the overall structure of the head and doggie bits. It's forceful yet controlled like a tremendous dramatic stage oration. Brava!
