#180 Pine Ridge

I pronounced this one done. It was done quite quickly, but not really as there were a few goes that took a lot longer, but which I deleted. The speed seems to give it more character & freedom. It is in two pencil settings – one with just the point, the other with the largest possible he”angle” simulating a pencil used on its edge. Its done but I was after another look. There may be more along these lines to come!

All day I have been looking at the world thinking how could I do that in pencil? It is particularly hard when it comes to large areas of black & whiter than white highlights. How can that be done? I notice that sort of contrast on peoples faces. More pencil pending.
