Quick Hand Studies

I've been painting a bit of quick hand studies, only 25minute poses. So often I paint head studies and figures but never seem to have enough time to get to the hands. I guess I'm also sort of preparing for a workshop this January with Clayton J. Beck III at the Palette & Chisel. Its given me incentive to really understand the shapes and characteristics of the hand.

Saturday's Painting

Here is the painting I did last Saturday.
It was very cold. I lasted about 2 hours or so and then I had to call it a day.
This is a very small painting about 4x8. I was glad to have a small canvas with me, I had a late start and it was just so cold.

Next time I'll bring a few more heating pads with me. It was fun though.
