Drawings Paintings of Hands and Feet

Hands and feet hold particular interest for this talented artist.

South Korean Artist WanJin KIM gives his work realistic proportions and coloring.

He achieves this, with a mix of colored pencils, acrylic paint, and inks. As I said above, the anatomical features that take centre stage in most of these illustrations, are the hands and the feet.

Most of the body emanating/projecting from them, fades away as an feature the artist is not really interested in or, a way of focusing our view on the aspects KIM wants us to pay attention to.

An aspect of the human form that is so often ignored or limited in its appearance and importance, taking pride of place in this post.

Hands, one of the most articulated parts of our body, used by many as an extension of language. Then you have the feet mostly covered and hardly ever noticed when they are there. KIM does a fantastic job at showing them in different poses and lighting. Some times taking a wonderfully soft ethereal look.

Enjoy the art plus, your Wednesday.

Ps. I gave the images some titles.
