Things you need:
Any size white paper
Oil Pastels (every color)
The original idea I based this off is when you draw a hand out line and make it look 3D by drawing lines up to the outline an curving them over the hand. Try to keep your lines close together and even.
I did basically the same thing with my piece. I drew a hand in the position i wanted, keeping the out line light in pencil. next I chose a dark red oil pastel to start and brought it down diagonally to the hand. I blend black chalk into the diagonal line close to the pencil. With a light red, I make my first curve (down-up-down) over the wrist. I use white chalk in the middle and at the wrist bone to make it look more realistic. I repeat with the dark red on the other side to the edge of the paper. Repeat these steps with different colors, in any order you want. I actually made my lines quit thick, it was easier with color.
When I was making this peace it was fall and I was binge-watching buzzfeed unsolved, so I had a lot of fun! I thought it looked really cool and I chose it for my National Art Honor’s Society induction piece.
I hope you enjoy and have had a great 2020!
