Powder graphite?

Does anyone use powder graphite? What are the advantages over applying say with a stick and blending? For backrounds that is.........Kevin

Duey, have you ever seen the work of Cole Johnson? He uses graphite powder in his backrounds. It's very attractive for achieving an out of focus look..............Kevin

I am amazed and grateful that so many gifted artists here aren't selling... and making me feel like a clutz! Seems so many just draw and paint for the love it, which is a relief for me in a way. I thought I was the only one for a while, til I got here! So keep up the good works, folks! All that's gold may glitter, but an ounce of it is just another ounce of it!

Cole Johnson's art is amazing but I agree, the prices are staggering. I would like to see him apply the powder graphite though. Looks very mystical...........Kevin

Hi Kevin...
These are not Cole Johnson's works but some of my previous attempts on graphite powder.
Now that I've seen his works..
I am somewhat inspired to use this medium again...but on a different subject.
By the way..charcoal powder are somewhat the same..only darker.

Staycat, they are beautiful. I love how they fade to zero on the edges. In the second one I love how she just emerges from the light. Nicole Kidman at the top, right? As I mentioned earlier, very mystical.........Thank you..........Kevin
