I chose this bird to paint because someone recommended these graphite “paints” somewhere and I bought a set so I wanted to try them out. The tints are blue, black and sepia…perfect for this bird.
The so-called “red” wasn’t red at all! What? Anyway, either I’m using them wrong or this set is defective because the permanent paints are really gritty. The instructions say to stir well before using but the grittiness never goes away.
