What type of piece is this? Drawing Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. It was a beautiful day to be outside, so I did a quick sketch in pencil, then brought it back home and used the water soluble graphite to finish it. I also took a picture of the scene and removed the color to get a better idea of tonal values as suggested. I can't say that I like the result so much, but I did enjoy the process---being outside, playing with the graphite--which made it fun.
