Do you like a challenge?

I guess the drawing of hands would be the ultimate challenge for most aspiring artists so it’s time to challenge your inner artist and step up to the challenge. True when we look at the drawing of hands by the artist Durer we might well feel over-awed by the thought of such a challenge. If the idea of drawing hands really terrifies you then you might want to get hold of a copy of Betty Edwards ” Drawing on the right side of the brain”. In her book she takes you through a series of activities including making your own picture plane. This involves you tracing your hand which in turn gets you to focus on the negative spaces which is really useful. My advice would be to stick with it and you will surprise yourself just how quickly you can improve in just a matter of days. My drawings below are an example of this. My other tip would be to experiment in different media.
