Hand with Pen, Gwen Buchanan
For the next while I will be posting a series of HANDS I drew during the last 2-3 months...
There will be versions in line, paint, charcoal, conte, chalk, ink..
on plain and colored papers, rough brown paper and watercolor paper.
This is a drawing of my hand with a pen I have had so long I can't remember where it came from,
but I like the way it feels and lays in my hand when I use it.
I remember I was wearing that thick orange sweater to warm up
as my hand was cold from keeping it so still in order to draw it.
