Vaniquotes Drawing Life by Fred Hatt Study of Hands, c. 1474, by Leonardo da Vinci You may hear it said that artists hate to draw hands, and I don’t think there is any part of the human body that is more challenging to draw well than the hands. Of course for that very reason artists who relish a challenge love to draw hands. Hands are complicated structures capable of an incredible range of pose and expression. Let’s look at images of hands in works of painting, sculpture, cinema and photography. Lady with an Ermine (detail), 1490, by Leonardo da Vinci Leonardo’s hand of a Lady with an Ermine almost makes you feel the sleek fur and impulsive muscularity of the animal she strokes.

Even before painting cave walls, early humans fashioned shapes from stone. From these beginnings, artifacts have evolved to their current complexity. The point at which they became art is for the beholder to decide. Material origin and qualities[edit] Marble is a metamorphic rock derived from limestone, composed mostly of calcite (a crystalline form of calcium carbonate, CaCO3). Advantages[edit] Among the commonly available stones, only marble has a slight surface translucency that is comparable to that of human skin. Disadvantages[edit] The West Wind Marble does not bear handling well as it will absorb skin oils when touched, which leads to yellow brownish staining. Developing a sculpture[edit] The work begins with the selection of a stone for carving. Once the general shape of the statue has been determined, the sculptor uses other tools to refine the figure.
