I love hands. I think it's an obsession. :*)

This is beautiful, I thought it was a photo. But I think the fact that it's a painting makes it even more beautiful...hands painting hands...that's lovely. :*)

I'm a painter too and I'm impressive by this work, by your work. Look at all your paintings and other painters, it's what I do when I can't paint, when my faith about my painting is not good or lost like you.
You are very talented with contrasts and light, look at Caravaggio or Rembrandt for exemple and continue to paint later. You can stop a moment, your work will be better when you will be OK, when you will feel goOd, I believe on your talent dear friend :sun: :hug:

I love your artwork - I always look to see work which is from observation. Often you can achieve things from life which digital media just won't allow. This cna be due to the artist's own insight, having been used to drafting from the full complement of dimensions, not just the two. Which promotes depth and perspective, and originality of form, posture and angles. Even light effects can be better used and captured from life. Just something I thought in hindsight.

OMG a tutorial on how you painted these hands with those dark shadows would save me now.... my shadows look like dark blobs on my poor 'virgin mary' painting now... i dont want to be eternally hated for what i have done.

Delicious oil painting, AnnaGreaves. :lick: The draughtsmanship for the hands is superb, it genuinely has a photographic still-realistic quality. Actually I have to say 100% for the fingers, with the difficult skills of foreshortening and all. I think every painter I've spoken to find hands really difficult to even draw, so this represents a stiff task to come through. :clap: And a formible study at 1x1 metre-ish. I'm not to bothered about the background or the wash etc, after all it's a study, I'm looking forward to the main piece!! Thanks for posting this eye-catching deviation.

Thank you for such a detailed comment. Actually this isn't a study for a larger piece, I consider it a painting on it's own (well part of a series). Although it did teach me a great deal about painting hands, which will definitely come in useful in the future. The transparent layers in the background are part of my style, and something that is hard to appreciate from a photo.

Very nice, I love hands myself. I don't know if the picture you took of this is shiny and bright but the whole thing seems like it could use more contrast. Good job though, folds in the skin look great as does the lighting on the skin
