Now I’m back with another skeleton hand – this time a side view of the right hand. Like the last one, I’m pretty pleased with this. I think my shading has improved on these particular drawings that I copy from my anatomy book (I’m drawing other paintings/drawings of bones). Add some flesh to this & I’m sure it would be tricky – I’ll have to keep this kind of pose in mind the next time I draw my own hands.
I’m finding that drawing from books (Loomis, this anatomy book, the Preston Blair book) is what I tend to fall back on when I feel too tired to try and attempt drawing from life. It’s working for now, but I know I’ve got to get back to life drawings. Soon! It’s my goal this week to do at least one of those.
