Well, it is no secret that my favourite medium to use is the stoic and oft forgotten pencil.......the workhorse of what we do. I almost hardly ever pick one up for anything other than to layout a painting or do a rough much anymore, but the other day decided I want to do a pencil piece, so I scrapped everything I had on the table and went to just draw. Draw for the simple pleasure of it.

I grabbed a sheet of 14 X 17 Strathmore 300 Series Bristol a 2B pencil my little pocket knife, a brass bullet sharpener ( for fine line sharpening ) and a kneaded erasure, and I just sat down, closed my eyes and started to draw, and this is what came out...
