|Art Graf Pigment blocks in black, white and graphite|
I decide to do a wet underpainting using the squares and I had the perfect subject. I have been wanting to paint these Queen Annes Lace against dark green foliage. I like the contrast between the light flowers and the deep rich dark greens. The black and white squares will be perfect to showcase this contrast.
|Very little pigment is needed of rich results|
I apply the Art Graf to a piece of Wallis shaded paper. It is a piece of seconds and I selected it because I wanted both the white and black to show up. It really takes very little pigment to produce a rich result when wet. I use a stiff brush and some rubbing alcohol to liquify the Art Graf. The results are in the photo below.
