I use a 2B .5 mechanical pencil to shade in the crevices and some of the details. I then use a 4B chisel edge .2 mm clutch pencil and burnish a layer over the cliff.

Frieda - you are absolutely correct! I did it again! Thank you for pointing that out!!!

It is a lead holder that uses 2mm lead. Here is the brand that I use. The staedtler lead is the smoothest lead to use.

Re: Basic 102 - Class 14 - Landscape - Putting it all Together

Beautiful Diane....
I am still learning to work on trees ... hoping to get to this class soon.

Can you please tell me the difference in results if I use a wooden pencil instead of a mech pencil. Will it effect my drawings

thanks ahead
PG

PG - I really think it is a personal preference. Some of the techniques might work better with a mechanical pencil, but I think you can certainly adapt these techniques to wooden pencils. I like using the mechanical pencil because I don't have to sharpen my lead and the weight never changes.

Re: Basic 102 - Class 14 - Landscape - Putting it all Together

PG,
I just bought my first mech. pencils and I love them very much. The very very very important point is what Diane said - you don't have to sharpen and this is wonderful.

Diane, I have another question concerning mech. Pencils:
What is the difference between graphit leads ans polymere leads?

The graphite powder is held together by polymers (I think!). So there is definitely differences between brands.

Dear Diane,
I echo the others sentiments regarding your beautiful work and your willingness to invest your time in teaching us. I too would like to do the landscape, although I did not do the sky, clouds and rocks individually--I will certainly review the classes and practice a bit as I work through this.

ABSOLUTELY! The list of materials is only what I use and my preferences. You may certainly use wooden pencils!
