8×10 Graphite Sketches from my sketch book.

In order to keep from going too detailed in these sketches, I tried to do them quick.  I find it hard to walk away from a drawing, “just need to fix one more thing…”

The Herdsman

This sketch of The Herdsman was one of my early sketches (2010).   I was experimenting with different grades of pencil lead to see what values and textures I could create.  It turned out better than I expected, and I had fun doing it.
