Drawing with Black Chalk

I have just received some black chalk leads for my largest propelling pencil

made in The Czech Republic and very thick.

nothing like the chalks I usually use, nothing like so messy.

 it was Vincent Van Gogh that got me onto this one, quite a few of his drawings are done with black chalk and watercolour and I wondered why, modern stuff on art is a bit arty about black chalk driveling on about the texture.

 I have been playing with it for about an hour, and. Hot Diggery Dog yes it's soft and smudgy like a very soft pencil, but. and it's a big but, it doesn't smudge at all when you paint watercolour on it.

slap it on

slosh it on

dab it on
