Another Sunday brings another of my hand sketches. I hope I can be forgiven for not going all out on this one. I’m afraid I spent most of the day out with my husband having a wonderful anniversary together. I did have my sketchbook with me but didn’t end up doing any sketching while I was out. Instead I just enjoyed the day and the company.
That meant I was squeezing this one in at the end of the day again though. I took another shot at getting a perspective drawing of the hand. This time I tried to get a better grasp on the whole foreshortening thing. I think it worked out a little better. I was a bit lazy with the shading though. I tried to leave it to dry before doing the shading but just ended up getting distracted and then rushing the shading when I got back to it. This is an area I definitely need to work on a bit more.
Overall though, a fun day and a fun sketch, even if it is just another hand.
