I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful magazine. I’m a traditional artist, primarily using graphite pencils on Bristol paper. Your magazine is jam-packed with useful information that I’m able to apply to my style ndof art. Your magazine contributors produce the most amazing art work. Michael Guest, via email
Beren replies Nice one Michael! And if you’re reading this, you should head over to Jim Pavelec’s tips workshop on page 104. It’s a fascinating look at his process in creating graphite and charcoal portraits. Even if beautiful grotesque isn’t for you, his insight is definitely an eye-opener.
