maximus sketch

General Maximus, watercolour pencil, gouache, pastel and ink on toned paper.

An experiment in using water-based media on grey-toned paper. The verdict: yes, even small washes will make thin paper buckle, no surprise there. I did enjoy leaving the middle range of tone to the paper, and making the most of contrast with the pencil and pen for darks and gouache for highlights.
