A Studied Study of a Hand...



It has been a while since I posted a drawing or sketch.  I did this one at the Getty museum after one of the drawings they had up in a special exhibit.  The original was titled "Study of a Man's Right Hand" and it was by Bronzini (Agnolo di Cosimo Tori).  I found it wedged in a book I recently unpacked.  I'm contemplating adding it to my master studies section on my website, but I haven't moved much more towards that then contemplation...

Hi Lisa. WELCOME to Sunday Sketches. I hope you find a wonderful, warm, creative place here with each of us. :)

Your sketch is really good. I've always struggled with drawing hands, faces, etc and I admire those alot who can. Hugs

Excellent! I believe hands are the most challenging parts of the body to sketch. Blessings!

Thank you! I tend to avoid drawing hands in general, but I was really drawn to this one. Thanks for the sweet words!
