Sketching Another Hand

I sketched sitting on my chair in the regular 9 x 12 sketchbook with a Pilot ballpoint pen with it on my footstool while watching the end of a baseball game.  Oklahoma won over the Texas Aggies to go into the championship games of the College World Series.  As a University of Texas Longhorn fan I'm not happy to see either one of those teams there.  I'm happy for the students that are there.  It is a big time in their life.  

But back to sketching, I sketched quickly as usual.

Number 5, listening device - Gene's AfterShokz head phones
Number 6, hand in position 3

We have sketched our hands many times in these Scavenger Hunts.  I think it is very good practice to try to get perspective and form sketching from life.  Give it a try.....

Nice hand with head phones. I know that when we did the hands and more hands on WetCanvas it made a world of difference in my ability to sketch them. It helps to keep practicing them too.

Thanks, Joan. Hands also help with foreshortening. You do them well, too. We've had a bit of practice!!
