Hand studies!

A batch of hand studies; the left 4 from Sargent and the right 4 from Bouguereau. Done to keep the ol' drawing arm in practice and get some more subtlety to my hands; I feel like I've understood their structure for a while but mine always came out feeling rigid and constructed, doing these is definitely helping understand the subtlety and rhythm they have, and how to portray it without rendering each and every plane which makes them look overdone.

Anywho, lots more of these to come! Cheerio!


  1. Hello!

    I wanted to know which program did you use for paint those wonderful hands. :)

    (I love your art. <3 )

    1. Thanks, Laura! The ones on the left I used Painter, the ones on the right are Photoshop. :)
