a small one

Distant Showers, 2011. pencil on paper 5 x 6 sold

When I usually start a drawing I will begin with pencil and then move onto darker vine charcoal because I like to get as much contrast in my drawings as I can, but at this small scale I love the delicate nature of using only pencil and I can get enough contrast by building up layer upon layer of a soft graphite pencil.
