I started this a few weeks ago as a fur demonstration for a U3A drawing class. Today I decided to finish it. It is the first time I have done a background in pencil and in reality it is not brilliant although it looks fairly smooth here. Not sure what I am doing wrong so will need to experiment more before trying another but I was quite pleased with the dog. The white fur looks a little blue due to the photograph, I should have scanned it really. It's about 7" square on Mellotex.

I have been helping out at a U3A drawing class and last week I was asked to demonstrate buildings in graphite. This was the outcome finished off today. 13x17cm on Melotex. I have really enjoyed doing this so may do some more. This is from a photo I took last summer as I was coming through the the church gate. Next time the subject is people so will have to get my thinking cap on.
This is coming along slowly. This is a closer crop to show more of the detail on the ropes. The sky looks rather speckled but is much smoother in reality.
