Lately I’ve between working on my lines. I thought keeping my pencil on the paper was going to be a lot easier than it actually is ?. I’ve been experimenting with different ways and tools to sharpen my pencils. Lately I’ve been using a knife and sandpaper. I’ve noticed that my light touch has improved greatly after doing this… I guess the length of the exposed core of the pencil intimidates me and I’m afraid of breaking it.
How do you feel about students, or artists in general, sharpening their pencils with a knife?
Thanks in advance!
