Graphite pencils are ideal for drawing and sketching with pencils. With pencils it is very easy to make dark shadows and light highlights, because you can easily erase or blend the graphite. Blending can be done easily with your finger or with a feather duster. A lot of contrast in your drawing is best achieved with pencils of different hardness. The hardness is indicated by the letters H (hard), B (black) and F (firm). The number indicates the gradation of the H or B. H pencils give off little graphite; the higher the number, the less the pencil gives off. For B pencils, the higher the number, the darker the pencil.
H, 2H, 4H and 6H are hard pencils and are mostly used for detailed work and sketching. 2B, B, HB and F are in between hard and soft. They are ideal for light sketching. 8B, 7B, 6B and 4B are soft and perfect for dark shadows and for colouring sketches.
