Drawing fashion hands

These photographs show some of the most popular hand positions for fashion design. Hands may be partly hidden, for example, in trouser pockets, or by the sides of the body - knowing these techniques is especially useful when learning to draw.

Practise sketching hands by following the drawn examples Fig. 6.11 to 6.15.
