You may remember that when I get into the flow of the painting and it is just me and her, I forget to take photos.
So, I thought today I will share the painting of two hands showing how they progressed.
My preliminary sketches showed more of the body and the hands were extended. I changed because I wanted the heads to be larger on the canvas. The challenge then became how to add hands in a way that would read believable (without painting the arms).
So far so good, I think.
I'm not yet sure if I will add a third hand.
I'm thinking about it.
I will confess that with each hand that I add to a painting, I feel a little trepidation.
Then when I go ahead and go-for-it, I am elated.
I'm headed to the easel now and hope to finish this one in today's session.
