My catch phrase for February should be Graphite is Grand! It was rainy yesterday so I found time to relax and to do another little drawing. When I create these little drawings I am using a 6″ X 9″ sketchbook and graphite pencils with several different hardnesses. I usually start with a 6H and that really hard lead seems to the one that “incises” the paper. I’ve also noticed that occasionally I get some incision using my 2B mechanical pencil. Anyway …just adds to the interest! With this drawing I wanted to do something geometric but I included the curved elements so it would not look TOO industrial. PS The paper is not pink! Couldn’t get the background color in the photo right!!!!!
