Albrecht Durer – Praying Hands

This excellent post demonstrates the use of light and shade in the right proportions to allow a very good likeness to be created of this classic piece of art by the German artist. The artist uses a basic step by step approach to allow the viewer to build up a representation of the Praying Hands.

Clear instructions allow visitors to progress gradually and acheive very rapid progress. It is not just the pencil in use here…the artist uses a blender and a paintbrush to add remove and manipulate the amount of graphite in the drawing. Using different grades of pencil allow the deeper shadows to be achieved; the highlight require the use of the blender and the eraser on the end of a pencil.

    3. The finished product is quite nice, but I don’t recommend any artist to break down this work the way you did. It’s an anatomical process for each hand and finger, as opposed to odd looking shapes. This only helps from source imagery.
