Yes, everyone knows how to use a pencil. But there is way more to drawing in graphite than just – using a pencil. First with technology, graphite is changing and allowing us to do so many beautiful things, we could only do with ink before.
Secondly, graphite is a wonderful way to express yourself, with so little by way of baggage! Just grab some paper, your pencil case – and go!
Tonal values (contrast) are an important part of any artwork. Graphite drawing is the first step in planning where a piece of artwork is going. A graphite drawing (yes some people prefer charcoal, and the same techniques apply) is to a painting what an outline is to a short story or book. Yes you can do a painting without a plan, but it will work out much better with a plan.
Additionally, graphite drawings are beautiful in their own space.
