• Guitar Practice - original graphite portrait drawing

    2 years ago - By Hackberry Street Studio

    Although I hardly ever use graphite, I had a great time doing this one on Strathmore marker paper that I had to buy for a landscape course. Maybe y'all have used this paper before, but I never had and was surprised to find it such a delight to draw on. Even though there's a slick finish - it's great for graphite! Drawing is my first art language - not painting, really - and I will be doing many more pencil drawings on this paper - a great find for me! Plus, even though the weight is only 50.5 lb, the paper feels much more sturdy. This drawing is 7 x 12". Thanks so much for stopping by!
