Breadth 1

Out Reached
8 x 10.5

I found this picture of my friend Camille and thought it would be interesting to draw.  I used the form of isolation to give a significance to her hand.  Though her face is in the background, I blurred it so her facial features can not fight over the importance of her hand.  I especially enjoy the foreshortening of her arm.  For this picture I used a 2B and 4B pencil.  I also used a shading pencil to get the blurred effect on her face.  The harsh lighting shows off the wrinkles in the hand which draws the eye toward the center of this piece.  This drawing also allows the viewer to circle around the piece because the tips of her fingers draws your eye.
