Life Drawing - A Hand

Here are some 5 minute charcoal drawings of my hand on A5 index cards - I did them at home with thoughts of composition and negative space in mind. In other words I drew the gaps and thought about the shapes they made upon the page.
At times I don't have much time to devote to life drawing, (I will be working in the drawing studio this semester.)
It can be difficult to make time for life drawing or access a model or a even a class.
But It is so worth it - even though I have done hundreds of life drawings in the last four years and there isn't one I am happy with. It doesn't matter
- the act of drawing has impacted so much on my ability to think,create and design images.
