A Second Attempt at Layered Drawing

Layered Pencil Drawing

Layered Pencil Drawing

The hour is getting late, but before retiring to bed, I thought I would go ahead and post this second attempt in layering pencils of different hardnesses. I feel I’ve entered a strange new territory in the realm of art making, and am excited over the possibilities.

Thanks for reading, and for all your encouragement.

    Gorgeous, all graphite? Woo. I’ve never messed much with the different leads (I have them, but I just get so focused that I don’t change pencils) but maybe I should! Beautiful job you’ve done with these shells, David!

      Thank you, Laura! Yes, I find some fascinating dynamics when I push into the paper with the 8H and then shade and draw over it with the 6B. The underlying white lines of the 8H are intriguing to me, and I plan to explore these further today.
