Under standing the mechanics of the hands
architecture of the hand
Kevin Warner of Colchester
Simplify shapes right down. You can use different colours in you like
One shape for fingers instead of individual fingers
Squint eye so you don’t see the detail
Just thinking about the outline
Step 2- Sketch in the architecture of the hands within the shape
Nikki has used yellow, red and blue in hers.
Variation of pressure of colours
Think about the direction of your marmaking
Use your darkest colour for shadows
Does breaking it down into shapes help you?
Draw the hand you are drawing with!!!
