100 Days Project

Esmé: 100 Hands

Every day I am going to draw my own hand for 10 minutes in the hope to improve my observational drawing skills (drawing from life). I will start with just drawing my own left hand. I hope nobody looking at this is a 'chirophobia' which i found out today means fear of hands!

Day 7:

Hand 7

I need to spend sometime thinking about the creases in the hand- usually an after thought in these drawings so far. I think the creases and hand folds also link closely to the anatomy of the hand. I am trying to be very holistic in drawing these hands using structural drawing to map out shapes before bringing in details but maybe some anatomy hand study at tomorrow's lunch break may aid this understanding.
