My drawing and painting life

Drawing hands

I’m drawing and painting a lot of faces this year. If you’ve been following me you probably know already. This weekend I practiced drawing hands.

Hands Collage

Earlier this year I found that I wanted to paint more than just a face, I wanted to paint torso and include hands and arms. I have little experience in that and that showed in my painting (so far unfinished because of it). Good reason to start expanding my practice and include hands and arms.

Here I followed a lesson by Annie Hamman in the course Paint your heart and soul 2018. I love Annie’s lessons. This was most helpful. I hope to do more in the near future.

Paint your Heart and Soul is a year long  course hosted by Olga Furman. There’s one lesson published every week, lessons are the joint work of a team of international artists all teaching one or two lessons over the course of the year . I enrolled this year, because I saw beautiful work coming out of this class last year. I am bad at keeping up though. But this month of September I am doing some catching up. And I’m enjoying it.

      Thanks, Sheila.
      Ah well, you know, just practice and you/I’ll get better. That’s what I’m doing constantly. Breaking up the process of drawing the hands into steps -like Annie shows in her lesson -really helped. 🙂
