Still bare bones in the garden, as I look out my window. Only branches except for the evergreens. Yuri, my Russian Blue pussycat, decided that the top of the shed was a nice place to sit and enjoy the day. So here is my sketch for today, the first time I am participating in the Sunday Sketches Challenge at Blue Chair Diary.
I'm going to have to learn how to press harder when sketching as it isn't too clear after scanning. Clicking on it does enlarge the image and makes it clearer. (Thanks Lissa for pointing that out.) I tried using fancy* drawing pencils instead of my usual HB. They seem to smear a lot. I guess that is by design but I'll have to learn which pencil is best for what use.
Sketchers, do you just use HBs or an assortment of pencils when you sketch? Thanks!
*well they were from the dollar store..... but they were "drawing pencils"! I have more expensive ones but I can't tell the difference yet, so until I can, I will learn to use these.
