Some 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.
Finally 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.
