Why do you call your work "Graphite Painting"?

Because they are not "sketches"!  My work is detailed and carefully done and so it's difficult for me to think of them as "sketches" even though that's how they are often described.

When I first started drawing, I entered one of my works in an art show and it was classified as a "painting" and judged alongside Oils, Watercolours and Pastels.  Producing art works in Graphite is every bit as difficult as these other forms and so I (along with a lot of other Graphite Artists) call my works "paintings" instead of drawings or sketches.
