    Thank you all :)

    I am with you @sonorabitandspur I have the same range in graphite but am still learning with the much darker ones. :) I start out as light as possible and some times its still hard for me to get it worked up to the darkest. But I'm getting there.

    I approached sharing the same way.I was always afraid to put down too much graphite. It took me years but finally I began to experiment. I go about it almost totally opposite.. I usually start with the subject and define the dark areas, then working to the light areas and bringing out my details. Then I will work on the sky, then horizon and background. Then I work in the fore ground. Because I am right handed I work from left to right.

    I have found myself bouncing around between how I handle each piece but I do a lot of the same as you. Main subject first then move on to the background.
