drapery and foot

mday74L.jpg

Some drapery and the foot of the Venus de Milo cast in the Hall of Architecture. Tried out my new colored pencil leads and found that the colors - unlike the black - are not particularly watersoluble. Too bad. The black is soft and reacts with great sensitivity to water. The colors just stay in place, blending a little, but not much. Layered on some gouache later to try to get the feel of the stone in that darkened corridor.
