With These Hands

It’s been said by many artists, amateur, professional, and legendary, that drawing hands can be a good test for artists to see where they’re at.

I decided to try my hand at it. A 1 hour sketch of my left hand, 6B soft graphite, about half way into a bottle of Merlot while sitting at the bar enjoying some live music.

Credit goes to the bartender and everyone around me for not making fun of me for looking like a weirdo, holding this pose of my hand in front of my face for about an hour while I put it to paper.

Good stuff. I found it far easier to draw hands than anticipated. I sketched another of my palm that same night, which will be posted next Sunday. Have a good week everybody.
