    Thank you Shechat! I've always had a fascination for hands. I spent more then a few years drawing only hands, from my own to others in action or in rest; I found it very peaceful. In this particular painting I focused on the main curves and fold in the wrist, and didn't go crazy with lots of details. I'm a believer of Robert Browning's, "Less is more". Although a subtle highlight on the thumbs cuticle wouldn't hurt either

    Trying some techniques with Tamara Geddes Oils DVD. Her technique reminds me of this painting and that's why I picked it. I may stop and start applying it to my own work shortly.

    I'm using Rembrandt Artists - Oil Color (121).col I've also made my own custom palette based on Tamara's underpainting methods.
