Keeping with my theme of drawing body parts, it was time for a more intense look at the hand.

What drew me to this picture was the nail-art.  What fun!  I don’t think I’ll sketch what’s in the inspiration picture.  I may try to do something a little more colorful.  Since my own manicures get so abused, and I’ve always wanted to do some of my own nail-art, this is the next best thing.  Haha!

Another big piece…..22 x 15 inches.  The same size as Blonde Beauty…but half the size as Hand Jeans.

I’m going to need to build up the colors in the fingers more.  Can’t really copy the “colors” of the picture, but need to use the pencils in a way to imply the correct shapes.  It’s really….. all about shape.

Wow! You are so talented. I had to look several time so make sure I wasn't looking at the photo instead of the drawing.

Your work just amazes me.

About Me

My photo
By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
