Hand



The human hand is quite difficult to draw, even though everyone pretty much knows what a hand looks like. The only reason I try it at all is because drawing draws on different capacities of the brain and provides a route toward other kinds of perceptions that would otherwise be lost on me. Certainly I'm in the lower 40% of the population in artistic talent, but that would be a kind of dumb reason not to do it.
