Developing the graphite travel lines

Wetting the paper before writing with soluble graphite (on gessoed bristol board)

Paper prepared with a wash of grey-green acrylic paint

Taking apart a book published in 1738 - sacrilege?

The bookpages gessoed and written on
Single pages treated with pva (left); the other three are gesso, with writing in various materials

Leftover paint on brown bags - too colourful, at the moment anyway

Lots of water versus no water

Gessoed till receipts, with felt tip, gold pencil, biro, water and graphite, pencil

Fine sand added to gesso; when written on and put into the sketchbook to dry, it made a sandy offset print
