I rarely draw finished drawings with pencil. Just watercolor, so i did this last couple days to take a break from commissions and have some fun. 14" x 11" graphite on Strathmore 400 drawing paper. I use two pencils and eraser. C&C welcome and appreciated.

Nice! What pencils and eraser did you use? I'm just getting back into pencil and am using way too many pencils.

I used a daler Rowney "simply" hd pencil from walmart and a solid graphite pencil from walmart that was a little bit darker. I use a Daley Rowney simply gum eraser. I think the generals gum eraser is many times better but I could not find mine. The solid graphite pencil was broke so i taped it inside of a tire pressure gauge that I took apart. I used all the stuff on top of the metal tin case in the picture. I actually started the drawing in the beginning with the carpenters pencil but I forgot about that in the original description. I rendered the water with the carpenters pencil which is a general 6b. The water was what I originally did the drawing for but I went ahead and finished the whole drawing with everything else. I could have done more but I called it done. I could have just as easily rendered the water with the first two pencils just as good. I use to be a Framing carpenter and later a commercial form carpenter and after that an architectural drafter doing Truss design so i thought it would be fun to start with the carpenters pencil. I have now been a professional street watercolor artist for last 5 years.

Re: Maga

That is very nice. Great clouds, which I think are difficult to draw, but much easier to paint. You did a very good job with them.

I like the scene. Good work on the sails and the rigging.

Re: Maga

Believe it or not this sold. Same price as a painting. 14" x 11". Seemed to me like the guy thought he would have to trick me into it. It was sitting next to some paintings that were for sale. He said "he liked the lines". Made me happy because Doing it, I realized how much I loved Doing finished drawing's again instead of just simple drawings for paintings. Especially with modern tools. When I taught myself to do drawings like this very long time ago, before computers, I never used anything more than a #2 school pencil, a piece of toilet paper and a piece of chalk. My eraser was the one on the end of the pencil. Mostly complex, realistic Erotic drawings, on typing paper. Sinse this sold, it give's me an excuse to do another developed Graphite drawing and see if it will have the same fate and I won't have to feel like I'm playing hookie from work when doing it. I'm looking into getting some 165 pound drawing paper to make them easier to display.
