More pencil

I’m still enjoying using the Grafwood 6B pencil, with no rubbing out so no hesitant and uncommitted lines! It’s very smooth, perfect for quick contour sketches of people, and can go from light to dark with the lightest touch. Here are people around town (I’m trying to catch more walkers as well as the easier sitters), the first floor windows of a  restaurant, and another late night selfie.

    Really lovely fluid liens with the pencil, it feels more like a pen with lexington grey ink in it. Particularly love your self portrait!

      Thanks Mel, welcome back to sketching! The pencil seems to work best with ‘natural’ subjects, more than buildings, and the grey’s a perfect match for the LG ink. Ed
