Left-Hand study in pencil and white charcoal

copyright 2005. This is a study of my hand I was working on. The highlights are in white charcoal and the pencils are a medium-grade drawing pencil, which I like for its softness and strong lines that can be achieved for me.

Hands are so difficult to master. This has a very solid, fleshy quality to it. I'm envious and I have certainly tried enough hands.

Nicely done, I think hands are hard to do. But you mastered it.
