Chicken Contours: Delaware Quick Draw

Using a Derwent Graphic 6B pencil today, on the usual Canson 50 lb. Sketch pad...

I think the pencil is a whole lot better than a 2B or HB at getting a wider range of line weight and value. And it's easier to do a gestural contour line with it, as your hand can glide more freely across the surface.
I will continue my search for the best combination of pencil and paper and, in the meantime, I hope my eye will grow sharper and my hand, quicker.
