In the spirit of Oprah and fellow Hoosier, David Letterman, I thought I would do a “My Favorite Things, Top Ten List,” this holiday season, all art related of course! Maybe you could add these things to your Christmas list or give to artist friends or loved ones! Let me know if these are your favorites too in the comment list or if you are anxious try something out yourself. So let the list begin…
The Aquarellable Stabilo Pencil # 8046
I love this pencil for life drawing. I was partial to just the black Prismacolor pencil, but the beauty of this one is, I can go over and melt it with water to create value and washes. It comes in other colors too as well as graphite, but I prefer the black.
I don't always use water, this is just straight pencil no water. I just the waxiness of it to get really light and then really dark marks.
