An unusual one for me. I'm more of a slog-with-the-point-of-the-pencil-till-you-get-it-right type of guy. Shoot straight and take the hits with the misses. Mind you, that's a drawing philosophy, not an endorsement for any kind of personal responsibility. That's really more my wife's type of thing. She also has lovely hands, and the above is how one of her's looked around the turn of the millennium.
I must have been inspired at the time by a documentary or magazine article on how real artists draw.
