All out of Linseed Oil!
Stopped in my tracks by linseed oil. There wasn't a drop to be found anywhere! How's that for letting painting slide? Pretty negligent, I'd say. So I experimented with my graphite stubs. I never used them much. I did this whole drawing with one very dirty one. There's more experimenting to be done--like do they still peel down to a clean tip? Or do I have to order them by the gross? Realistic graphite portraits are becoming an interest. (TIP: Working with a dirty stub is a lot like working with charcoal's advantage: the prosess is a play between adding and subtracting. Of course, templates are a must have).
