Today in life drawing we were focusing on the human hand. Mike gave us some tips of how to think of/understand the structure of the hand before we went on to draw. First we did the usual 1-minute warmup poses of Jacquie.
Then we went on to do studies of Robert and Jacquei’s hands, 5 minutes per pose. We used pencil instead of conte to help with the precision of the studies. I definitely am a lot more confident with a pencil than with conte, especially for detailed drawings like these. I have also been practicing hands in my own time and I think it’s paying off. I’m quite happy with my work.
