Here are a couple of quick sketches in graphite crayon. I wanted to practice my first hand drawing. The first is of one of those flip out brushes and the second a crumpled £5 note. They are really huge - about A0 size.
I quite liked using graphite and being able to shade with such strong light and dark. Also because the crayon is so thick it means I have to be bold and try and be confident with the lines.
