Birds of Paradise

These drawings happen in circles, until I see something, its like meditation. Those are the two types of pencil used so far. An ‘F’ type which is hard but not too hard, that’s very important. Hard leads tend to burnish the paper leaving it shiny, which makes it impossible to photograph or scan. Also a 3b soft to add depth as the meditation tells me. After this I will make deeper shadows, probably a 6b or more. This darkening also makes the light areas more accented.
