  1. I appreciate that you are taking your time with this drawing. Watching your technique allows an opportunity to think along the way and to relate the way marks that you are making achieve certain textures. some of which I have tried with mixed results.

  2. Hi, Matt.
    Crossed wires again, I’m afraid. This one (Part 4) is actually a repeat of Part 3 when you go to the Download Page!
    All the best, Bill

  3. This graphite drawing turned out wonderfully! I loved watching all the different textures and values come together. This was a good study for me to focus on ‘seeing’. Thanks, Matt!
