Learning to Draw – Hands

It’s been a while since I’ve worked on my drawing. I’ll admit a big part of that is that I struggled with the current exercise and gave up for a bit. But before I gave up, I got a chance to draw my hand again. And this exercise made me proud of my progress before taking a hiatus.1

For this exercise, we used our drawing panes to draw our hands. This process took a while but I like the result. Then we were to transfer the drawing from the pane to drawing paper. I generally consider myself a patient person but drawing continues to test my limits.

Another cool thing about drawing my hand again was that I used the same pose for my initial drawings. So we can look at a comparison of the same subject in a similar pose. The first before I read much of the book. The second after completing the current chapter

I found my progress pleasing until I started the next exercise and these drawing show how far I’ve come in just a few months. Now to get back to it soon so I can continue improving.


  1. The holidays also weren’t particularly conducive either.
