Pencil, 10 x 13 inches
While my laptop was in the shop again, I put my other work aside and had fun drawing with some General Pencils. General's sent me a box of their products so I made these with General's Drawing Pencil set and a few from the Classic Watercolor Set. I'm also trying out a new sketchbook. The paper is a bit rougher than I like for drawing but the price was right.
The General Pencils are beautifully made, smooth and secure to draw with. No breakage in drawing or sharpening. I look forward to using them more. I'll tell you though, a decent pencil drawing takes me soooo loooong to make. This one took three hours, easy. Really, that's not so long. Maybe it feels long because of other work looming.
Sitting on the floor, drawing my shoes made me feel like I was back in high school. So I called up my high school buddy, Maria who now teaches art at our alma mater and drawing classes at other schools over the summer. We gabbed while I drew. A perfect convergence.
Keen Newports are my most favorite shoes ever. I'm on my second summer of daily wear in this particular pair and there's barely any damage to the tread. When they're dirty, I throw them in the washing machine! They have pretty good support, are very comfy and and worth every penny!
