Good day, dear readers. Today I'll tell you about my cute helpers-relaxers :) - my pencils from the set of drawing pencils TM "MARCO RAFFINE" (12 Artist Sketching Pencils). They gave me pencils under the Christmas tree for the New Year. It is very rare to find time for drawing or any creative activity in general, but after a hard day or a nervous strain, drawing is a good way to relax and have fun. At the same time, no one canceled warm hugs and chocolate :).
And so my pencils come in a metal box, the total number is 12 pieces. They are made in China. The box indicates that the pencils are made of high quality wood and graphite rods. The pencils are marked. The hardness of the pencils varies from 2H (the hardest) to 8B (the softest, when applied, the shade turns completely black). European marking. We open the box, which is very convenient in terms of transportation. There is a chance that the pencils will remain safe and sound during a trip or walk in order to make a couple of sketches in nature. The pencils are located in the box from bottom to top according to the hardness scale. At the bottom is the hardest pencil 2H, at the top the softest 8B. In general, all pencils of group B are soft. It's just that some on paper give a more muted, matte black tint,
In order for you, the readers, to understand the difference, I bring to your attention the shades of all 12 colors presented in the box, made by me for a better understanding of the difference in the level of pencil hardness. Such a visual form allows us to see a kind of tone scale. I like to draw the contours of figures and objects with an HB pencil, it is neither hard nor soft. I use 4B-8B pencils for shading objects, and an F pencil for playing shadow and light. A drawing cannot be born without an eraser :), it miraculously removes roughness and makes highlights.
The day before yesterday I drew a raccoon for my daughter, for good luck :). Today she had a test in chemistry and he acted as her talisman. Control is written! :) And yesterday with Zakharchik, the son of my friend, we learned to count apples :). He is 3 years old. Soon it will be necessary to finish drawing more apples :). Today, having looked at all sorts of graphics options, I settled on a still life. In addition to everything that is in the work, there is also my pot, made in the pottery workshop of the Likhtarik Art Studio.
I did the shading with an ordinary soft squirrel brush, and something with an eraser. I made the light areas with harder pencils, the dark ones with softer ones. I love to make contours, I do them with the softest 8B pencil.
All in all, I was very happy with this gift. Today I saw such a set in the Akvarel stationery supermarket for 78 hryvnias (approximately 214 rubles). This is quite a budget option, that is, affordable for almost everyone.
Having such pencils is a guarantee of a great mood and peace of mind. All the best!
