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.
