    yes ofcourse i enjoyed and liked watching it as always!
    i'm about to ask if you have any photo reference at your side while drawing this, surprised there's none.
    again, hands down how you can draw beautiful things simply just with your 'photographic' imagination and memory.

    I am pretty sure i have watched and attempted each drawing you have on you tube. I am a huge fan of your work. Do you also have a Facebook page to follow as well? I look forward to all of your new videos. I need you to draw still water such as a pond with rings in the water. I have been working on one similar for a few days now and the ring ripples I am working on just takes the realism out of the drawing so I am hoping you can instruct me on this. Thank you for your work.

    Inspired me to start drawing in graphite. Great work. I live by the ocean and take photographs typically in black and white. I am taking those photos and recreating them in pencil. Question. When applying graphite with tissue I find the first touch creates a much darker tone than the rest, any tips to get a consistent look?

    Smoothie, just watching video on seascape. Can you not fix the focus to the page distance? might help. Love the effect of the eraser in the wave I know exactly where I going to use this, Sandsend Yorkshire.

    Hi Smoothie77, I can't thank you enough for your amazing instructional videos. I've begun to find a new pathway in terms of pencil drawing. Thank you so much. One thing I am desperately struggling to achieve is the way you manage to draw and erase all the movement splashes on a wave ! At the moment it seems beyond me!

    I am in Wales on holiday and sometimes I take a little sketchbook with me to try and sketch. I say try because by no means am I an artist. I have done needlework all my life but love to try and sketch little pictures while on holiday. Today I found your tutorial on my iPad and was absolutely blown away by your seascape in pencil. You are without doubt – gifted. I would love to produce something as amazing as that. It must have taken many years and study for you to produce such outstanding work. Do you have beginner tutorials? I would love to have a try. Thank you so much.

    You've got me back into graphite. I may have to try and copy your drawing. It would really get me focused on creating wave shapes. I particularly liked the creation of the background waves. Very, very nice. I just ordered a Tombow eraser as well. I think I used to use too many different hardnesses of lead. Restricting the types of lead gives your pictures a focus which mine never had. Thanks again.
