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.

I did this from a photo in acrylic, and notice how I've become more generous with my paint application. I want to concentrate on using more paint, mixing with the knife to keep the color from turning muddy. Over and over I hear that to keep the color clean, use a knife!

Nancy McCarthy; last week was spring break and the week before a snow threat which cancelled class while I was in Florida anyway. I am so looking forward to be there tonight!
