Sketchbook Assignment: FIRST: Complete your sketchbook cover with Sharpie.
THEN...If you have time.... Set up a still life of 3-5 objects. Sketch them with your pencil set. Add some shading, using various pencil hardnesses. Remember, "H" stands for hardness and gives a lighter shade. "B" stands for blackness, and gives a deeper shade. The higher the number, the harder or blacker the pencil is.
