Summer Heat

It seems fitting to share these sketches on New York’s hottest day of the year so far. While these have plenty of flaws, they were executed quickly and served their purpose as placeholders for design work. All were done using a black Prismacolor Watercolor pencil. I didn’t use any water on these to activate the watercolor effect that these pencils are designed for. Instead, I opted for this pencil because of its rich black color and softness. They scan well and reproduce well without dealing with some of the flatness and glare issues graphite tends to have.
