Today I decided to take Brent Eviston's course The Art & Science of Drawing. I took notes and then looked around the house for any materials I had to start with. That little pencil is the only one I have around the house right now..., but I decided to start with it and get a better one soon. Following Brent's explanation I tried, the best I could with this pencil, to draw light lines. It really does make a difference the way one holds the arm! I felt professional and my upper body felt relaxed.
