jade plant

Getting back into regular sketching in my sketchbook – this one features a small branch of my sprawling jade plant. Perched on the windowsill, Jade was glowing in the afternoon sunlight, poised for praise. I used a Staedtler, Mars Lumograph B pencil; then a mechanical one for added definition. Staedtler makes very consistent high quality drafting/drawing pencils. I like using the HB, B, 2B for sketching. Some of the softer ones (4B and up) smudge too easily, since I’m inclined to rest my hand on my artwork.
