The first goal I wrote on The List was:
001. Fill a sketchbook with artwork/studies of only one subjectIn a moment of absolute madness, I decided the subject would be hands.
Because I'm rubbish at drawing hands.
I've been working on this goal since towards the end of 2014, though I didn't initially get much further than a few half-hearted scribbles, and the picture above!
Though I've posted some other hand drawings, until now I haven't shared any more, so here's my progress so far...
Wanting to avoid spending hours at the computer to draw from on-screen references, I cut hands from magazines instead. Some of the results turned out pretty good, and mostly I switched between pencil and biro.
But I got bored of that, and decided to draw from on-screen references again, using some different materials (in the above instance, oil pastels, and below, pastel pencils).
Finding reference pictures online was starting to become a little annoying, as I couldn't always think of poses to search for.
But my problem was soon solved...
