The first sketches of 2017. The firstone realized by "sanguigna"
a red ocher used to make crayons for drawing, much in use since the Renaissance and from the Baroque to the pleasant color and the nice smooth gradation. I really love this crayon, the touch and consistent is wonderful. You can do what you want, and the colour is soft. So feminine.
+ Pencil Sanguigna dry can nuanced being at will and must be protected with fixative. It is' particularly suitable for making portraits, shadows and shades.
+ Pencil Sanguigna Fat requires no primer and is therefore particularly suitable to dripping or extemporaneous portraits.
The Sanguigna is available both in the form of a square section rod which is formed by pressing the powder, both as a mine of wooden pencils. The hardness is higher than the graphite and the yield of light and shade is smaller than the charcoal.
You can find some pencil here:
+ Matita Sanguigna Rembrant Lyra
There are a lot of wonderful artist very good in sanguigna use, if your looking for some inspiration :)
I hope to inspire you.
Have a great day to everyone!
