Ooof! Hard Hands!

18 Nov


Almost at the end of the life drawing session at Swansea Print Workshop and I spent the last few minutes drawing the model’s hand. There was some quite severe foreshortening and it was hard. Very hard. OOOOOFFFF!!!! No matter how many times I measured up, they still look weird.

I drew with a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablet using a free Markers app. I worked onto a black ground that I put in first.

    I think it is hard because we have pre-conceived ideas about what hands loo like. And it is weird.

    Who cares for perfect, really. Sometimes expression is now important…

    Even if you missed your personal standard of exactly right proportions, you did a wonderful sketch, very expressive of the presence of a strong human hand. Right on.
