Been a long time since I drew Humphrey Bogart. In fact the last time I did was when I was experimenting with a painting app on my phone back when that was new technology. So here I am again doing an experiment, with Bogart as my subject, but this time I am tinkering with mixed media. Still for those who follow me. My thought was to use a black Crayola crayon for the drawing so it would not smear or be affected by the watercolor paints laid on top of it as it would naturally resist. Then coat it with Ultra Matte Medium and use colored pencils and some gesso. I worked well enough but the end result was a bit too "chalky" white. Going to try again with a slightly altered approach soon.

Here is the crayon drawing and the sloppy watercolors.
