Give them all a hand

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As a sort of “art test”, I was asked to draw a set of hands.  Hands are some of the hardest things to draw because they move in so many different ways, they catch the light in every conceivable manner, they are semi-transparent (as with all skin) and most everyone has a pair, so they are intimately familiar with what they look like.  If they are wrong, it becomes obvious quickly.  So here is said set of hands, two are my own (which is really hard to draw since you need to keep them still, hold the pencil, maybe hold or shift the paper, etc) and two are female friends for variety.  These are pencil on toned paper and white charcoal for highlights.

New Red Riding Hood Drawing

I have been working on my drawing for a new painting that I am working on based on Little Red Riding Hood.  In my version, Red is a bit of a femme fetale and will do what she needs to in order to take her revenge on Big Bad for the death of her grandmother.  This is pencil on toned paper with a digital color wash.   I hope you like.
