Book Description

April 4 2008 Dover Art Instruction
An indispensable and easy-to-follow companion for the intermediate art student, this concise guide focuses on how to capture the natural representation of the human hand in all its forms and motions.
Over 100 clear and expertly rendered drawings help artists discover:
• The subtle but crucial differences between hands of young and old, male and female
• How to accurately draw hands engaged in a variety of activities
• Skeletal and muscular depictions, which help reveal how to naturally draw the workings of the magnificent human hand
Educated in England at the Chelsea School of Art and the Royal College of Art, the works of Carl Cheek were widely exhibited in Europe throughout the 1950s. His artwork is included in numerous private and public collections, including Britain's important and often-visited Government Art Collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars Leaves you wanting more Sept. 13 2009
By Parka HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Length: 0:09 Mins
Drawing Hands is a very elementary drawing guide for the hands.

The tips given are based on observation rather than instructional. It means that you'll probably have no problem copying hands but constructing poses from imagination will be tougher. For example, when shown the structure of the hand, we know the length of each finger in relation to other. But it doesn't explain that relation in terms of how they can be drawn easily when the fingers are bent and hands turned.

The last section briefly points out the differences between hands of kids, adults and elderly, female and male.

While the book is inexpensive, it has only 48 pages. Overall, it leaves the feeling of wanting to know more techniques on drawing hands.

3 out of 5 stars. Recommended for beginner artists.
