portrait in blue

Size: 11 x 15
Medium: Watercolor and Ink
For those who kindly wrote asking about "a bottle of ink in a pencil",
here is a photo of a demonstration on beginning portraiture. The class is about drawing the face and, painting it in colors that are and are not done in common "flesh tones." The "ink in a pencil" is very much like a watercolor pencil but is indelible. I draw onto dry paper and manipulate with sponges, or I draw onto a damp/wet surface to see where it takes me. The post below has a link with a photo of the pencil. This has been one of my favorite tools for many will find it used in many of my pieces.
