Graphite Lesson

Today’s piece is being drawn on Stonehenge vellum paper. I’ve used Ain 4B Hi-polymer lead in a mechanical pencil and a variety of derwent and prisma graphite pencils. I will be doing a review of both Faber-Castell and Caran d’Ache graphite pencils in the very near future.

I also used a tombow mono eraser, kneaded eraser and shading tools to complete this piece.
