Obviously, I couldn't sketch the pencils themselves, not in their true colors at least, so I let other pencils stand in. And the highlights didn't work very well. There was a white pencil in the box, but, wet or dry, it didn't seem to end up in the drawing.
For my second sketch, I dragged everything outside, and huddled under my eaves to do one of the dogwood blossoms. To make the white stand out, I cut apart one of the multitude of paper grocery sacks that I've brought home during the pandemic.￼
