Just a few this time. I tried ‘drawing the sword’ but wasn’t happy with the end result, will do it again so maybe next time. I can usually make about one or two which I am at least willing to show for about every four I draw. How happy I am with even them is another question. Well, I doubt I will ever be good enough for myself, what I would like to be able to do would be something like reproducing a black and white photo with a pencil well enough that you can’t tell it from the original photo. Long way to go before I’ll get even in the general vicinity of that skill level, if I ever will.
I like to use a rather soft pencil so there is usually some smudging. One of these, the side view of a woman’s face, was done with an ordinary marker pen while I was talking on the phone.
