I decided to change up my mediums and practice sketching with something other than watercolors. General’s Sketch & Wash pencil (made in the USA, yeaaaaaah!!!) is a nice change of pace and I highly recommend it as a quick, yet fun sketching tool.
It acts just like a pencil, however it is watersoluble, which means you can take a clean water-filled brush and move the graphite around.
You do not need watercolor paper either. I drew this in a sketchbook with 70lb paper.
Between the two sketches, I think I prefer the simple line contour drawings over the heavily shaded profile sketch. Quick and fun!
I really like these! We have three cats and one is Siamese and looks just like your kitty profile..
Thank you! I love cats! I only have one, but would like more. Too bad the mean hubby wont let me 😦
I hope mean hubby reads this 🙂
I have played with the water soluble graphite pencils, too. I like what you have done in both sketches. I think my favorite is kitty profile.
Thanks! The pencils are verrrrry fun and quick to do. I think I spend so much time with watercolors, I forget to change it up a bit!
