Graphite on paper
When I finished drawing my shoe, I found a rose to draw. Yes, it was a long wait in that waiting room, but I had more fun than the people reading dog-eared magazines.  

I'm learning a lot about values as I work with graphite. I'm sure I should have learned this decades ago, but I'm thinking it's valuable now, too.
