Drawing hands

Caroline started the new year with a quick demonstration on drawing hands.

Drawing hands start with drawing shapes composed of rectangles. . The palm is the largest  rectangle . The fingers are made up of three rectangles built on each other. The end of the finger has a smaller pointed rectangle. The thumb is place on the side and it too is made up of three parts.. Move the finger shapes according to the model’s hand and make note of the knuckles which lay next to each other and are rounded.The tendons fan out from a central point to the fingers

Depending on the shape of the hand, you will need to take into consideration of perspective which can shorten the shapes coming forward.

Practice is very important in helping you to learn to draw hands accurately
