These are examples of my graphite pencil drawings.  I use a wide range of pencils, from 7H to 8B, which allows me to achieve the darkest and lightest values.  I usually work on Strathmore 250-500 series bristol paper.  As with my colored pencil drawings, I work from my own photographs, the majority of which are taken in the general area where I live.  I try to choose photographs with a strong light source which creates interesting shadows and value changes.
