Hand Drawing Number Twelve
Posted March 2006
The reason it didn't get finished is that someone came round when I was only half an hour or so in, and once I'd moved my hand I never got back to it. I can see what I was going for though, outline first, then major tone blocks. The next stage would have been modulating the shadows more.
This is the last drawing I did before I started working on the Bargue drawings. I mention that because I think the Bargue drawings have had such a positive effect on the quality of my line. The next four hands show an improvement over this on in the quality of line and observation, I think that's largely due to the practice with the Bargue plates.
