Chair in Graphite

Talk about a challenge for me!!  So much detail with all the chair components to have to try and capture.  I found myself getting lost and a bit frustrated but I did make myself follow through.

This was done with a Derwent 9B pencil mainly using side of the lead and then detailing more with the point.

Worked in the Stillman & Birn Epsilon sketchbook.

9B is very soft and one doesn't have to apply much pressure to get darks.  I was a bit timid thus keeping the entire sketch mostly light to medium tone.  Also, due to the ease in smudging, I will have to use a fixative on this page.
