Constructive Criticism is welcome so is ideas of childhood memories to paint.

You must be thrilled. Child hood memories are so precious :sparkling_heart:

Thank you very much for your kind words

Hi Heidi @Hlyseggen

This hand is lovely and clearly belongs to a very young child. The only suggestion I’d make is to work on the arm a little more. Remember it’s like a big cylinder, so there should be subtle highlights and then shading (darker values) as the arm curves away on the side. Your fingers are done really well, so just carry that technique into the arm. Hope this is helpful.
