In jun, 2010, I attended course of French drawing. The professor asked us to make the realistic drawing of our own hand.

I decided to use charcoal and charcoal pencil as medium. It’s true, hand is a good subject of drawing : It changes with age, sex, position, ans it can hold an object or not. It’s very instructive.

I used a grid of 1.80 inch (2 cm) to place well the hand without necessarily too much precision. Then, I made the implementation for the charcoal. The darkest values were realized in the charcoal pencil. I used a paper stump to standardize everything.

My hand, the model :
