Spring Drawings from the Pencil Side

From my current sketchbook, all except the first from the side for dry media. Time and again I find that I do love pencil, even if the ink stuff is so much flashier on first sight. There is a deepness to pencil, the variety of tonal values possible in one and the same stroke, the possibilities of softness and precision. Oh, and I always wish that this phase of spring, where most trees are still bare but there are buds everywhere would last longer. So much to draw, so little time! Once all the leaves have unfolded they become so much less interesting to me.
