Marcos Isamat draws with pencils ranging from 6B to 4H. The result of each type of pencil depends on the porosity and grain of the paper, which modulates the graphite. He uses conservation or handmade paper with hard-on-soft pencils to force the graphite into the cellulose and create a varnish effect. Light reflections are sharpened by erasing, revealing only the memory of the graphite.
