    Great pencil work.
    The past is history, the future is a mystery, all you have is the present

    Very nice work with the pencil
    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.

    Impressive start! The hard part is to fill evenly enough and modulate tones, even with a 100% tilt (tilting gives less dark tones with a certain pressure).
    Panta rei (everything flows)!

    Thanks Pat for your kind words, I found using pencil so different, the tool I will have to try and master is oil and on that I have not got a clue.

    Geoff.. very credible start.. and with your patience and skill I am sure you will be able to push the pencil ( pun intended ) a long way....

    Thanks for that, I must admit I found the pencil without the aid of colour very challenging and also more time consuming that I expected.
    Hopefully I will get better at it as time goes on.
