Turkey Hand- A Claassen Gallery Challenge
Once again Jeff from The Claassen Gallery has posed a Weekend Art Challenge. This time I was ready for it, I eagerly checked my phone on Saturday to see if and what Mr. Claassen posed as this weekend's challenge. And what was said challenge? A turkey hand! You know like you did in elementary school? I knew I couldn't just trace my hand, pop a beak on it and call it a day. I tried really hard not to look at the other works that were submitted before mine because I didn't want to be influenced. I sat down intending to just sketch out some ideas and what do ya know?! I finished the darn thing!
Here my friends, was the process!
So here's my traced hand and the beginnings of my turkey

And.... the finished product!!! I'm pretty proud of my little turkey. Never in a million years did I think I'd ever be doing a turkey hand and I certainly didn't think I'd be getting fancy about it!
