Daily Squiggle

Daily Squiggle
Shell from a warm sandy beach.

Lynne: I did this squiggle at a class given by Teri Partridge. We were to draw the altered edges of a shell. I’ve included the pencil drawing and the squiggle I did later.

I use a mechanical pencil with 2B lead and a a blending tool when I do a graphite drawing. The squiggle is done with Caran d’Ache colored pencils. The color of these pencils seems to go on thicker than the Prismacolors and need entirely different techniques when blending–which I am trying to learn.
