Something a little different…
This is a little different I guess, at least it’s not a full portrait.
This sketch is based on a reference photo I found online. I liked how the hand partially obstructed the face, the dark shadows added even more depth and mystery.
I may continue with this theme and produce a series of sketches featuring hands and faces. I like the emotive quality.
The medium is graphite, powdered charcoal, & white pencil on toned tan paper.
Thanks for visiting, have a wonderful day! – Mike
