Mixed media paper

Recently I was at an art show where there were a lot of interesting things going on. Between talking to people, I took the opportunity to sketch my surroundings.

Graphite sketch

I used my HB graphite pencil for the sketches. I could have just left the notebook full of pencil sketches as is but I decided to keep adding more to the basic sketches.

I traced over the pencil sketch with my black Pitt Artist Pen with extra superfine tip for a crisp contrast.

I added some colors to the sketch tiles with Albrecht Dürer Artist watercolor pencils. Because I could use these pencils dry, I could have left them as is but I went a step farther.

With my water brush, I touched the sketches with water to bring them to life. Because the Pitt Artist Pen ink is India Ink that’s permanent when dry, I didn’t have to worry about the ink running.

The whole process was easy with no mess, no spills. It was good use of my time and a fun way to document the day. Hope you give it a try some time!
