Apple - Value Study

A value study in water-soluble graphite, done with ArtGraf from Viarco and Faber-Castell pencils for the details in the apple.

I have done this in order to understand better the values before making a monoprint of the image.

It's a great medium for this kind of studies, even after the graphite as been wet and dry, you can still erase it, so many mistakes can be covered. You can also lift the graphite with a dry brush before it dries or with a tissue, just like watercolor.

Artist Belinda del Pesco has a great video on how to use this medium, you can check it here.
