217. Abstract Pencil

March 29, 2008
Feminine Abstract
Dry watercolour pencil on paper, August 2007.
 I don’t usually draw abstracts. If anything, it is reminiscent of the feminine form.
It was drawn using watercolour pencils, except that I didn’t paint over them with water. The pencils, when used dry, have a unique texture and can be built up to a thickness that I personally haven’t found in other standard types of pencil. I like the way the original has brought out the grainy texture of the paper – though I don’t know how clearly that’s been captured in the photograph here.
