Painterly Hand

test hand_web

 

This is a hand study I painted in Photoshop. I was experimenting with brushing, looking for a way to make things painterly but not have that overworked digital look. I’ve been following Carol Marine’s painting a day blog for some time now and I love the way she can render things in oil with such big chunky brush strokes. This study didn’t really achieve that but I like the way it looks anyway. If you’re curious to try it yourself, this is just one of the default photoshop chalk brushes after playing with the brush settings a bit.
