I did a post back in 2011
on different ways that different artists painted eyes. So for today’s post I thought I would revisit this theme, only this time, to see how some of my favorite artists paint hands.
There is so much to learn by seeing how different artists tackle the same subject. Comparisons like this can allow us to see the effect that an approach can have when working on your subject. Do you want to refine your subject down to something extremely soft? Or would you rather thrash brushwork into the canvas in order to achieve texture and character? How does leaving an outline around your subject change the way it is seen? Seeing how other artists solved these problems and the effect it can have on their work is always fascinating.
