A third graphite piece.

This piece extends the range of mark-making.  As well as using a brush to apply the graphite powder, I have used a strip of mount board to create various expressive marks.  I like how using the powder allows for a mark to change in tone as it is repeated or extended.

Due to circumstances, I am currently working with limited materials and space.  I have started working with graphite powder and pencil, in an attempt to get back to 'basics'.  The graphite powder I am applying with a brush, and am aiming for similar effects as with my pastel and oil works.

This is a beginning of what I hope will grow and develop into an extensive series.
