Valerian: Dark Fashion Gothic Portrait Art by Elaine Foster  




Drawing: Dark Fashion Portrait Art



"A line is a dot that goes for a walk."
~ Paul Klee

The Technique: an ingenious little pencil, the Bohemia Works Toison D'Or : 1900 7B. The lead is so soft that the final effect emulates both the dark, greasy line of conté, with the dry, whispy, "smudginess" of charcoal. Waterproof India ink applied with a Chinese bamboo brush and bright splashes of watercolour are also used. The bamboo brush, designed to be held perfectly perpendicular to the surface, allows for greater variety of line depending on how much downward pressure is applied.
