Water-Soluble Quick Sketch

Today I just wanted to experiment with my new Inktense Blocks. These can be used in a similar way to watercolours except they come in a stick so you can either used a brush to apply them or draw them directly onto the paper. You can get similar effects to watercolour paints with 2 massive advantages. The colours are much more vibrant than traditional watercolours. Once the ink is dry it will not reactivate again if you put more water or other wet media over the top. You can even rub them onto a damp stamp pad and print as I have done with the hearts above.

The actual face is drawn with 12B water-soluble graphite stick available in the dollar stores. I'm not even sure if this face belongs to a girl or a young boy.
