After the human face, the hands have the highest density of nerve endings, hence our hands being the next most important and individual way to communicate and express ourselves. Thus the hands are the next most important feature of human anatomy to master in art.


Leo will guide you through a layered oil technique to paint hands for yourself. Although many people consider them a difficult subject to complete, he will show you a structured process to simplify and complete a hands "portrait".
