Carpenters Pencil

The carpenter's pencil is another wonderful sketching tool to use in conjunction with the regular pencils. As seen in these sketches, values are indicated with simple, broad strokes. Add darks by pressing the lead harder. I added a Der-went carpenter's pencil (4B) to the second sketch (far right) for additional blacks.

For drawings with heavy foliage, such as the one below, use the same technique with more modeling. To make the finer lines, hold the pencil sideways, using the edge of the lead.
