Applied in All Directions

Drawing mediums were applied to paper in multiple directions in an attempt to completely cover the substrate and have as little paper as possible be visible. The pronounced texture of the cold-pressed watercolor paper made it difficult to achieve complete coverage resulting in a more speckled appearance. Alternately, the smoother texture of the sketch paper made it easier to completely cover the substrate. The type of medium, depending on its consistency, also affected coverage with softer mediums such as Conté crayon and pastel covering the paper better then harder ones, such as colored pencil and graphite.
