It's still a little wet in places, I went back into it this morning to do so more detailing before uploading the image onto the MPC facebook page. Pop on over to the page and have a look at this album, the other seven artists are also uploading their work today. I will do a blog post on all of the work when it's all in later today. Here are some details of the image.
I was having trouble with painting this hand, as with all things that one has not tackled before, many issues arose, mostly to do with proportions. A couple of days ago this hand was going drastically wrong, fortunately my good friend Lisa offered to be my hand model and I took photos of her in the same pose with the same side lighting and that helped out heaps. I also watched many Youtube videos on drawing hands (because videos on painting the hand do not seem to exist) and I also looked at some of my favorite artists and how they paint hands. I will do a Link Love post in the next few days covering painting hands.
