I've been asked to share my approach to drawing and I have to admit, I probably go against alot of rules. These drawings are for my drawing pleasure only and so, my approach is very casual. In this case, I drew directly on the paper. If this was a more serious piece, I probably would have spent more time with the composition, drawn a draft, and burnished the outline. But, I had a pretty good idea of the composition, didn't erase, and used a light touch so as not to create grooves in the paper, which can ruin any pencil drawing.
