Poppy Sketch

This painting was done with acrylic paints and a Sanford Noblot Ink Pencil.  I thought I was buying a drawing pencil, and instead I noticed when I got home that it was "a bottle of ink in a pencil."

I sketched in the poppies. When I added water and acrylic paints, the pencil line bled and turned blue.  Shocking, but cool effect.
