I have joined with three artist friends to do a sketch a week of our local area or anything I see in this area. I am behind as this sketch was for last week lol.
The sketch on the left was the initial sketch done with water soluble graphite. It was cropped because I centered the tree. The sketch on the right is the same sketch but added more to the left side of the sketch, darkened some areas and then used a damp brush to blend and move the graphite.
