Can't remember if I have shown this or not but, I did this a few years ago. Doing any kind of foreshortening is not my idea of fun but even with the challenge of doing the fingers and thumb I so enjoyed doing this painting. It was the mood, the lights and shadows, the brushstrokes and my fave palette, black and white. I have been rejecting doing black and white paintings for a while now for fear I get too comfortable and don't challenge myself with colour. I think I have met that challenge and can put aside any fears of getting too comfortable now. lol!
