You can have a look at a scan of the artwork here - I'm quite happy with it. Hands are a funny one - sometime they go ok and sometimes they go really wrong. Putting thumbs in the wrong place was always a killer for me. That and stupid wrists.
shop. It's on some nice paper in an edition of 50. All hand-printed by myself, signed and numbered. I destroyed the screen (well, it kinda destroyed itself), so this is the only run I intend to produce.
But wait... there's more! I had a little play around with some watercolours on a few roughs and quite liked how they looked so I decided to hand-colour a few of the finished prints:
Watercolour is notoriously difficult you photograph so the detail is quite subtle on these pictures. You can click on the images for bigger versions. The real-life colour is a little stronger. I didn't want to crank up the saturation artificially though. They look good. Promise.
