'The Moses' study in Nitram Charcoal.

A bargue plate drawing of the right arm of ''The Moses'' (c. 1513–1515) is a sculpture by the Italian High Renaissance artist Michelangelo Buonarroti...the right arm holding the Law tablets...from this angle you can't see the whole arm.. Bargue kindly left a record of it through drawing it..

a charcoal copy of Bargue's plate 1, 24. ''Arm of Moses' (in the book).
extract from the book : ''the strong right arm of Moses holds the Tablet of the Laws in its hand.''

first complete bargue with Nitram charcoal sticks, they are really top quality...have been off with man flu so given me chance to have a go with the charcoal. good bye pencil's me thinks!
