drawing the paper i am drawing on... i realized after three holes that this was going to get boring. makes we wonder if repetitive designs will become more interesting once i gain confidence or if that isn't something i have a fondness for. already i am beginning to think i want to try different pencils, these seem either too hard (hb) or too soft (4b). they are good for lots of shading work because the 'lead' is the whole pencil, but i think it allows for me to work it to a nub before i sharpen it, and therefore find detail work hard. ok, this is all speculation since as you can see, this is only my 5th drawing...!
