Bargue - 12th hour hand study

Bargue - Voltaire's Hand - pencil drawing

I completed this drawing in the twelfth hour of my thousand-hour 2012 art challenge. It is taken from Plate 1.13 from Bargue's drawing course, and it is the most intricate (and difficult) study I have done for a long time.

I have accidentally stretched the whole hand vertically, losing the delicate weight and grace of the original. Once again I have rushed into rendering before checking all the proportions match the guidance diagrams. I will probably have another attempt later to try to capture the proportions properly.

I used 2H, HB, 2B and 4B pencils, and spent around 4 hours on this drawing, which is roughly A5.
