This is a realistic drawing that was produced with a variety of graphite pencils on a heavyweight paper. I really enjoy the details in the center of my hand, the foreshortened fingers and the shadowing of each finger. I also found the tension and implied action of the thumb and middle finger to be very expressive (while shaping the sable brush). The dimensions of the original work are 18in. X 18in. It was created in 1999.
