|A Girl, But Not My Girl, graphite, 6" x 8", Thirty Minute Daily Drawing Series|
Sometimes you need more than thirty minutes. This morning was one of those times. So I took an extra ten on my closer look at the child in Can I Be Excused and still got no cigar--other than her mouth. Keep on truckin'.
I have no intention of adding color to my morning drawing sessions; I gave colored pencils up in 2009. I have added to my range of leads: from using only a G 314, then moving to a Berol HB, I've expanded to a 3H, HB, 3B and 6B.
A 3H is great for keeping things light till all points are in place, but then at least one of the Bs is necessary. I'd rather change the pencil than increase the pressure and dent the paper.
