Line, Color, Shadow

W14 20 LOJONGSome of you know I am doing a year-long study of Weeping Buddha
along with the lojong postings on my other blog.  Thanksgiving, the first
was a simple line drawing of Weeping Buddha.

W14 24 LOJONGNow all color, pale wood colors and darker wood colors.
Some shadows influenced the color of the wood.

W14 23 LOJONGW14 23 LOJONG 1Finally shadow using a Lyra water-soluble graphite crayon.  I love this technique.
After the initial sketched charcoal I wet it with a #8 or #12 round, and then put some
on my fingers and smudged it and smeared it.  I love the color of graphite and
when it becomes a paint-like substance it is quite beautiful.

 Painted in OKINA (Cadic) journal with Lyra Graphite Crayon + various watercolor paints.
