In the Life Drawing Studio: Hands and Patterns

 I am lucky to be able to go to a large working studio in an old schoolhouse and get to see works in progress when I go for life drawing. Finding a good set up, let alone good models is not easy, so I am really thankful for the space and the organizers who find the models.
My focus this session was on the model's hand, and I used my technique from last week to try and help me. Not only is getting the shape right, scale is also an issue. So often we draw the hands way too small.
I found a nice tutorial on Wet Canvas that might be useful to those needing help with drawing hands.
