Hands

Painting hands is hard.  Much harder than faces for me.  Hands move and change in so many ways and have so many angles.  I find painting them tedious.  Faces are challenging but they turn out beautiful, hands are always just hands, neither here nor there.  Unless you are painting a beautiful ballet dancer, then they become a thing of beauty.  But in general, meh.  Today I was laughing with Geoff about wishing people would always keep their hands in their pockets.  This is Sammy’s hand.  I think it turned out alright.  He was holding his fingers like that which is a little odd, but people do odd things with their hands.
