1000 Hands in 2012

I won't bore you with all of them but here are the last few. I challenged myself in January to do 1,000 sketches of hands by the time #2's birth some time in May. Well a few things came up so I didn't finish until November. It was an interesting challenge for myself. 
I certainly feel much more confident when I look at hands. One thing I tried to do was draw a natural looking hand, then do another more stylized or exaggerated. To me the more exaggerated hands are more lively and fun. Elegant hands are still difficult. Just capture the fine thinness that conveys a feminine hand and you have it.
