Detail of a Archimedes, Hand and Gear - Sunday Sketches

I have not burnt out my desire to draw hands yet.  Here is a detail of one I finished this past week.  I used charcoal, pencil, white charcoal, and blended white and sanguine conte to create layers of greys, whites, soft pinks and blues in this drawing.

Very cool close up and angle on this one.

I seriously need to make some attempts at focusing on the different parts of the body I struggle with sketching. Hands and mouths are my toughest areas. You're so inspiring. :)

Thank you for joining in SS each week. Hugs
