Left: Faber-Castell Pitt Artist's Calligraphy pen sketch with gouache washes in a 9 x 12 inch Fabriano Venezia journal. Click on the image to view an enlargement.
The painting on this sketch was done with a 3/4 inch angled shader (around the edges, all the background). I used a red and a blue gouache. Then while the paint was still wet I used a damp 3-inch wide flat brush to slide over the paint surface and drag some pigment into the sketch and add more color over the surface of the white paper.
This is a criminal from the turn of the 20th century, in France.
