In starting a series of paintings and drawings on churches and church architecture, I decided to explore various media and rediscovered my love of pencil work. I enjoy the process of shading and showing texture; my favorite pencil for this is 2B. A 2H pencil remains top of the list for transferring drawings to watercolor paper.

Pencil drawings were the first works I offered for sale, so the use of pencils has felt like finding an old friend.

This is really lovely. Sometimes we get so enchanted with the amazing range of media available to us as artists that we forget the power of the humble graphite pencil!
