Hi friends! Today I have a painting done in water-soluble graphite. This is a wonderful medium to bridge the gap between drawing and painting. The pencils I am using also have a tint of color to them so it is also a nice introduction to color if you have mainly been working in graphite.
If you don’t have water-soluble graphite feel free to follow along with watercolor pencils. Watch the video for step-by-step instructions.

One thought on “Painting a hawk in Graphitint Pencils (watersoluble graphite)”
I saw this hawk in your Michael’s & Derwent class and knew I wanted to give it a try. I have all these supplies and feel like I haven’t used them to their full potential. I think I will watch this again and take some notes so I don’t miss any of your helpful tips! Thanks for the demo!
