Punica granatum | Graphite


After a bad attempt with the paints yesterday evening, I decided instead of calling it a night, to try something different. I chose to draw something with pencils alone, as my friend Deborah had told me how getting pencil shading right is a very useful process. I copied this from an image I found on Google Images.
