6 x 6 oil on canvas panel
I realize that there is not a big market for paintings of a hand however hands are a HUGE challenge for me so I thought I needed to work on one (I was overwhelmed by the thought of painting two). I asked my patient husband (Blitz) to model for me one night when he was enjoying a glass of wine. This was a difficult study for me because they are so hard to do - keeping the fingers from looking like little fat sausages. Hands and fingers have so many joints and bones and it's tough to make them believable looking - but here is my attempt.
