Quickly, change the subject. Perhaps no one will notice how coarse we are....

If you lend someone £20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

You have my sympathies on the last picture Cathy- I once had the genius idea of drawing a snow hare, in the snow. Only when I had almost finished did I realise I'd chosen to describe a white animal on a white background using only a black pencil

Yes! I can totally relate! At least the boat was dark but how do you draw white hairs on a dark background with a black pencil?!

I did try the indentation method but it didn't work all that well. My putty rubber left a terrible mess on the paper so I've given up on it now. I'm putting it down to experience.

I don't use a putty rubber, I use these:

maybe you need to experiment with different papers for the indent method, otherwise, I'd rescue whiskers using a blade, to take off a fine line on the surface .

Don't give up:)

It takes a while to sort out the best mix of materials and techniques for you and that can be aggravating if you've got it sussed in another medium, but bear with

Thanks grinnie. I do love drawing so I'm not giving up yet. I'm a bit frustrated with the materials I have but I have to make do with what I have for now.

That rubber looks really good for fine work. I'm wondering if it's the same time of rubber as you get on the end of pencils and whether I could sharpen one of those. I might give it a go and see what happens.
