4 Ways

The assignment was to do hand studies. My idea was to use the classical palette of titanium white, yellow ochre, cadmium red light, and chromatic black (Gamblin). I also wanted the hands to radiate out from the center of the canvas, which involved rotating the canvas a couple of times. Each study took about an hour, I used natural light from the window in all cases, using both brush and palette knife.


  1. Really nice, Anne. I like the way you designed the canvas. Your palette produced some nice skin tones.

  2. Thanks for your comments Linda. That palette was interesting to work with, I will definately try it again. Love YOUR committment to the portrait!
