This work is amazing! I hope you don’t mind me asking you something about your techniques? Do you build up tone through layering of increasingly darker pencil grades or do you generally apply the darkest tone for the area you are drawing straight off? I struggle with applying softer tones of graphite onto lighter ones so generally I apply the darkest grade straight off for the area I am drawing but i’m not getting the results you are achieving and wonder if this could be the reason. Lastly, do you use mechanical pencils and do you always draw on Bristol vellum? Any advice would be much appreciated. Kindest regards. Julian..keep up the good work..so inspiring!
Oh, sorry, lastly what would you recommend when using charcoal and graphite together?
