I've almost finished teaching my art class commitments for this year so will be having the entire month of August free to work on my own projects. I've made a start on a new drawing, just trying a few new techniques, for me anyway!
I'm lucky enough to be sponsored by Derwent pencils so am using one of my favourite Derwent pencils on this drawing which is the sketching pencil but I'm also using the Derwent Onyx Dark which gives me the required 'blackness' in certain areas.
I'm enjoying working on this aside from the fact that I look like I have spent the day down a coal mine by the time I have finished!
I always find Graphite quite difficult to photograph because of the glare back but here is the drawing in it's present stage the best I can photograph it!
Hopefully off to spend this weekend painting in the Lakes, I have my brollie at the ready!
