Library Visit

Now that I have gotten this far, my next thought was how can I move forward with the rest of the hands..

I decided to take a trip to the library and find information on painting hands.  I always ask for help so the librarian looked up many authors and books.  I took a few home and reserved others.  How disappointing nothing was helpful at all.  Nothing had what I was looking for.....

Finally I thought just take photos of real hands and try to paint them.   I used my hands first , but couldn't decide on how the hands should be positioned on the canvas.  It took awhile to figure it out.  After studying many photos open hands reaching up made the most sense.  Next step done
