Works of art in Graphite

I truly believe Graphite is simply the perfect medium for a highly detailed, photo-realistic piece of art. A drawing looks timeless and elegant and will fit anywhere. While a good sketch is a solid base for a painting, a great drawing is the perfect piece of art in its own right.

Why I love graphite?

I love working with the simple graphite pencil. It is the perfect little tool, so versatile, so comfortable to handle, so immediate. However, don’t be fooled by it. It creates the most delicate shades of grey an artists heart could wish for, shadows and light, skin texture or hair, depth on a flat surface. While the width of a single line seems insignificant, it makes the difference between “looking like” and “That’s him/her!”

I only use the best materials available to me because I believe that my clients deserve nothing but the best. Hence for my graphite art, I use acid-free Bristol board extra smooth drawing paper and Staedtler Mars Lumograph pencils and leads exclusively.

Oh, I do love my sketchbook! Yes, I understand that sketch books are mostly hidden in drawers or travel easels. But why? Why not share those little insights too? Come on, they are fun little drawings and who knows, they might inspire you to grab a pencil too. You know the drill, click the image.
