Pencil Art

My drawings are 'free hand', in opposite to using a projector. A projector will cast the imagine you want to draw on the paper and all you have to do is trace it with a pencil.

You may like to try that, but personally it does not appeal to me; it presents no challenge. I usually take a photograph as an example, make a rough outline and then work in the details.

The reason why I use a photo is because the subject does not whither, it does not depend on the weather and when it is a person then they don't have to spend untold hours sitting in the same position, ending up with a cramp. Grin.

Depending on the subject, it takes me 3 to 7 full days to complete a drawing and it is worth every second of it. It is never boring and the results are unique pieces of art, which give a great sense of accomplishment.

I love working with pencil; the possibilities are endless even though it may not seem so. The subtle gradations in grey give depth to a drawing and emphasize the difference between light, dark and shadow.

As you can see, it is not all black and white! :-)
