Graphite and Tinted Graphite on watercolor paper

11” x 22”

Just an experiment really, I have wanted to try using tinted graphite for a while. I kept the background pure graphite and used the tinted graphite on the pears and bulb, I might use this with a “real” drawing sometimes

Loving the tinted graphite. As always your work is exemplary.

What brand was the Tinted Graphite, if I may ask?

I love how you used the tinted graphite, which I have some derwents that I have not used hardly at all. Its nice to see what can be achieved when used so well.

There... is such a thing as tinted graphite? *Wants* But... before I even try I must master the skills you have in just normal graphite.

I love the concept behind this, and the execution is brilliant! You truly are a master of arts. If you ever do this with your regular drawing style, it will probably be even more amazing!!

On another note, how much (approximately) do you think you would charge for designing a complete CD booklet and graphics layout?
