Another graphitint painting. This time I worked with some wax, as with my current watercolor paintings. The pigments of the graphitint pencils settle on the edges of the wax spots and produce interesting effects. As with the watercolor painting, the washes can be blown in desired directions with a drinking straw. However, you always need a lot of water, which leads to the loss of graphitint pigments.
