Sketching your hands

One thing I’ve always enjoyed is drawing my own hands.  Well, mainly my left hand since I’m a righty.  I remember sitting in class as early as elementary school and sketching my hand as the teacher would talk away.  I believed, at that young age, that you could draw almost anything else if you could draw a human hand.  I still think it’s a pretty good measuring stick.

Since I’m still only in my first week of getting back to sketching I thought I’d give it a shot and see if I could pull it off.  The rust is definitely there and will take some time to shake off but I could feel a little bit of the old artist coming back.  Just a little bit though.  Well, at least my measuring stick has it’s first reading.
