I've been busy - my birthday having been on Friday.   I've tried my hand at a new technique - using different types of pencil.  My friend, Tym, guided me through purchasing a basic sketching kit, and together we set up a rudimentary pencil set.  Below are some of my efforts.   I started with basic shapes - squares, triangles, circles, cones, spheres and cylinders

 Then I tried my hand with a bit of perspective, starting with horizon lines and focus points.

 Finally I felt myself ready for a challenge.   My friend had dared me to draw a series of cubes of various heights in a two focal point perspective.  I felt a bit overwhelmed, but as I dug into it - i found it to be rewarding as I felt the mathematical principles of angles and parallel lines, coupled with the liberal use of an eraser bring this project to completion.  I'm rather proud of it.

As always, please comment and critique. I look forward to hearing what you think.  Until next time...
