Working W/ Graphite

"Young Bowman" 22 x 28 inches, graphite

I am really enjoying working with different shades of graphite and recently have bought some graphite powder to try some interesting affects! Will show you more works using that medium. In the meantime I have posted a recent drawing here using only pencils. I used 2H, HB, 2B, 4B, 8B and black negro pencil which really was the best enhancement to the darker areas. Sometimes when working with charcoal or graphite, it is good to "tone" the background or purchase paper that is already toned so that highlights and shadows are more enhanced (creates more depth). For this drawing I decided to just use textured white paper and the result is more of  "high-key" work of art.
