Hamsa Hand & Negative Space

This is a drawing I did a week or two ago. I was trying to design some artwork for a logo / website but I think it is too complicated. I tried to make it more simple! Can you tell? I have this horrible urge to cover every inch of space with details - can you tell? So, while I intellectually understand and appreciate the value of negative space, I have a hard time applying it. So I may try again. But in the meantime I actually was happy with how this drawing turned out.

It was sunny out today! What a gift in February. I went and sat in the park and drew for a while. There were a few other people with the same ideas as me - and some dogs.

And now I am listening to music and want to draw some more but my hand is getting sore so I might take a break for a while. Painting is a bit easier on the hands and uses slightly different muscles. Knitting causes about the same amount of wear and tear as drawing but uses different muscles. I try to plan things out and mix it up a bit. Plus I am reading a really good book and I am sure will soon retire with it. I really know how to spend a Friday night.
