Hand 67

I'm getting closer to my #100DaysOfHands! Only 33 to go. It will be so great to finish what I started, and I don't want to let myself down and not finish. So I drew my own hand today using a thin black Micron pen, working on shadows and expressive lines. I am more comfortable in pencil, but have been challenging myself to use pen—it makes me work harder because you can't erase! I like the overall "chunky" feeling the drawing has, and how I can create curves and form with just thin scratchy lines. I look forward to drawing my next hand, and not taking such a long break this time!

  And finally... here is my next hand drawing!  Been quite awhile, and 2020 has been quite the year. I can only say I'm glad I haven't given up on my goal of #100DaysOfHands. I liked the composition with the 2 hands holding the rose softly. I used Micron black pens to outline the hands/rose, then used colored pencils to finish it off. I think the lines have an expressive quality, and the soft colors add an extra layer of expressiveness to the drawing. Hope to have another drawing soon!

Here is my hand 65, just can't believe I've not had the time to draw for so long. Last year was very difficult personally, sure hope I will finish this #100DaysOfHands before the end of 2020. Made myself a promise I'll finish what I started! I drew this hand in colored pencil—Having not drawn for so long don't think it's that bad.  I feel the shadows really help round out the hand. And the layered colors really worked well together helping the pencil drawing look somewhat like a painting. The purple fingernails make for a rich color contrast with the warm hand tones!

Here is my hand 64!  This was a difficult drawing probably because of the perspective and multiple fine lines in hand. But I'm thankful I was able to find time to draw this today. Happy Presidents' Day and hoping you find some time today for friends/family/alone time...

Hand 63

Here is my hand #63, another attempt at using a thin black drawing pen. I am still struggling with perspective and want to continue trying to get better at it!  I like the feeling though of the dark outlined areas, it helps give the hand more strength and emotion.  I will probably continue black ink again next time!

Got through hand 62!  This was difficult getting the proportions correct and think I could have done better on it, but it's great practice so I'm happy I finished. I want to continue this black ink drawing, even if it's not my best skill, my hope is that my other skills will improve if this does. Will see what I do next...

Here's another try at black ink hand drawing. I feel this was a bit harder to draw, must be the shading and multiple lines. Not my favorite drawing but I'm happy I'm continuing my #100DaysOfHands project, seems like I still have so many to go (actually I do)!  Anyway may try colorizing the hand tomorrow...
