EDM #240 Draw a pencil
Graphite on sketch
This is a sketch of one of my Derwent Graphic pencils with a value scale. I have drawn more value scales than I can count. When I first started drawing scales, I used (light to dark) 2H, H, HB, B, 2B, 3B, 4B, 5B and 6B. Now, I just use a 2B mechanical pencil and blend and blend and then I blend some more. This technique was gleaned from reading Lee Hammond’s book Lifelike Drawing. Great book by the way. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to improve their drawing.
Remember those lost in the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.
