My background as a black and white film photographer has taught me to always look closely for light, shadows and distractions, something out of the ordinary, details. When I photographed the orange rust growing on the old wall, I knew that I needed to see deeper. Experimented with Derwent’s pencils, challenging because are so soft and low contrast. I did add some Inktense color too. I really like the way graphite moves when water is applied. Both the Graphitints and Inktense are water soluble.
