Snowy Owl

I had never seen
one of these owls
before. This
one lives in the
Anchorage zoo.
I love drawing
with pencil. It
is such a simple
medium, and the
first type of art
I ever learned to do.
They make all
different kinds of drawing pencils. The lead is either soft or hard,
and they are numbered according to their hardness. A 6B pencil
is really soft and black, and a 4H is really hard. Those are the two
that I used in this drawing. The 6B pencil is one that is woodless:
it is solid lead with a black plastic coating on the outside. I love
these pencils; they make the most elegant darks. I will be doing
some more pencil drawings in the next few days.
