I tried sketching on watercolor paper with a General's Sketch & Wash graphite pencil, using this type of pencil for the first time.
Added acrylic paint and immediately found out what the "wash" word means in the title of the pencil. Adding moisture really smeared the sketch. I should have remembered what happened on the sketch when Charlene added her wet nose and tongue when I tried to take a picture of it. This is an excellent example of me learning by doing.
Being determined to finish the Many Flowers, I used markers in various colors to redefine the sketch!
I want to do another sketch that I could color in. Does anyone have any suggestions on what to sketch with if later I want to add paint, charcoal, markers or another medium afterwards?
Have a blossoming day!
