Realistic pencil drawing of hands and rosary

Posted on Jan 30, 2017 in Art Tutorials, Pencil Drawing Technique | 0 comments

My latest pencil drawing finally complete…after working on it for more or less 50 hours. This drawing is a blend of charcoal and graphite. I was able to achieve the very dark areas with charcoal and a Mars Lumograph 8B pencil. The drawing is 17 by 12 inches in size and done on Stonehenge paper. The drawing will be part of an art instructional book I am busy writing. The book will show step by step how I created this detailed art piece. Stay tuned!
